Bacon-Wrapped-Alaska-Scallop-Sliders-152-1024x768Ingredients

  • 2 cups mayonnaise
    4 teaspoons pimenton (smoked paprika)
    1/8 cup olive oil
    5 medium or 3 cups sliced red onion
    1/8 cup balsamic vinegar
    16 large Alaska Weathervane Scallops, patted dry
    16 bacon slices, fully-cooked but not crisp
    16 mini-hamburger buns, split
    16 small (3-inch) lettuce leaves

Method

  1. Blend mayonnaise and pimenton in a bowl; set aside.
  2. Heat olive oil over medium heat in a large pan. Stir in onions; cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Add balsamic vinegar and simmer one minute. Remove from heat and keep warm.
  3. Wrap each Alaska Scallop with a cooked bacon slice. Grill or sauté scallops for 2 to 3 minutes per side, cooking just until scallops are opaque and bacon is crisp.
  4. Place buns on grill and lightly toast. To serve, spread about 1 tablespoon mayonnaise on cut side of each bun. Place about 2 tablespoons onions on the bun bottoms, top with a bacon-wrapped scallop and lettuce leaf, then close with bun tops.
