Sea scallops are wrapped in bacon, pan-seared until a gorgeous golden crust forms, topped with an addicting garlic butter sauce and are secretly super simple to make.
Cook bacon over medium to medium-low heat in a large skillet for 10-12 minutes. The bacon should be almost cooked through but still pliable.
Remove the bacon from the skillet and let drain on a paper-towel lined plate.
Prepare scallops by removing the tough tendons, or side muscles, and patting dry.
Serve scallops with a sprinkle of fresh parsley and lemon wedges. Enjoy!
If you are on a Paleo, Whole30, or Keto diet, use bacon that is free of added sugar and leave out the sugar in the recipe.
Ghee can also be used in place of the butter.
