To serve


  • Preheat oven to 200°C.
  • Rinse your fresh scallops in cold water, and cut the bacon rashers in half.
  • Wrap a piece of bacon around each scallop, and secure the bacon together with a toothpick.
  • Place on a baking tray. Drizzle coconut oil all over the skewers. Bake until the bacon is brown and crispy, about 6 minutes.
  • Serve with balsamic and a sprinkling of chopped parsley and lemon juice.


Tip: These scallops can also be done beautifully on the BBQ. Just splash some white wine on as they cook on the hot plate.
