The Red Lobster bacon wrapped sea scallops have been on the menu at Red Lobster for a long time. The reason is that they are so tasty. Sea scallops are marinaded in wine and butter, and then wrapped in bacon before cooking.
1 1/2 lbs. sea scallops
1/3 lb. bacon, cut slices in half
1/4 lb. butter, melted
1/2 C. dry white wine
1 tbsp. lemon juice
1/2 tsp. paprika
1/2 tsp. seasoned salt
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Melt butter and wine together, when melted add paprika and seasoned salt. Drop scallops into melted wine and butter sauce. Allow scallops to marinade for about 30 minutes. Wrap each scallop with half piece of bacon, and fasten bacon with a toothpick. Place wrapped scallops onto a baking pan, and bake in the oven for about 8 minutes, then turn over and cook until done.
