Bacon-wrapped scallops lightly marinated in a teriyaki, fresh grated ginger, and brown sugar sauce. These are always a huge hit at every party I go to. They disappear fast and then I’m always asked for the recipe. I often hear comments such as, What an awesome combination!!! and These are so additive!!

Recipe Ingredients

  • ½ cup teriyaki sauce
  • ⅓ cup brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons minced fresh ginger root
  • 18 slices bacon, halved crosswise
  • 12 large sea scallops, cut into thirds
  • 36 toothpicks

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Set oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven's broiler. Line 2 baking sheets with aluminum foil.
  2. 2 Whisk teriyaki sauce, brown sugar, and ginger in a bowl.
  3. 3 Wrap each piece of scallop with a strip of bacon and secure with a toothpick. Dip each bacon wrapped scallop in the teriyaki sauce mixture and arrange on one of the prepared baking sheets.
  4. 4 Broil in preheated oven until lightly charred, about 6 minutes. Flip scallops and transfer to the clean baking sheet and return scallops to the oven. Continue to broil until bacon is charred on the second side, about 6 minutes more.

  1. Very nice recipe, made street tacos and used a tarragon aioli mentioned in this site, awesome! As others had mentioned I marinated the scallops for 30 minutes and baked the bacon ahead for 15 minutes minimizing the chance of over cooking the scallops, came out great with nice and crunchy bacon and perfect teriyaki scallops.
  2. I loves callops I love bacon and the Terriyaki sauce just puts it over the top. It will be a big hit the next BBQ.
  3. Fresh ginger is a must in this recipe. Will be making this again very soon!
  4. EXCELLENT! This is so easy and takes such little time to make. Hubby's favorite way to eat scallops. Thank you Mimi Calo for sharing your recipe!
  5. Easy to make and delicious! This was a big hit at a New Year's Eve party.
  6. I precook the bacon about 1/2 time needed as the scallops will overcook...Excellent otherwise..!
  7. Great dish
  8. This is as good as it gets for a bacon wrapped scallop recipe. The marinade is excellent. I make a homemade teriyaki sauce and marinate the scallops for at least an hour. This recipe is a winner for parties.
  9. Followed recipe as is and these were perfect. For more of a teriyaki taste I will try marinating the scallops longer. Used low broil mostly and just watched them closely. NO changes necessary. Delicious
