I enjoy cooking for my parents, and my bacon-wrapped scallops recipe is one of their favorites. If you prefer, replace the pear preserves with preserves or jam of a different flavor. —Ethan Hall, King, North Carolina

Ingredients

  • 12 bacon strips
  • 3/4 cup pear preserves
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 12 sea scallops (about 3/4 pound)
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper

Directions

Place bacon in an ungreased 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan. Bake at 375° for 7-10 minutes or until partially cooked but not crisp. Remove to paper towels to drain; keep warm.
Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, combine the preserves, soy sauce, brown sugar and pepper flakes. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 3-5 minutes or until thickened.
Wrap a bacon strip around each scallop; secure with toothpicks. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. In a large skillet, cook bacon-wrapped scallops in oil over medium-high heat for 5-7 minutes or until scallops are firm and opaque, turning once. Serve with pear sauce. Yield: 1 dozen.
