In a bowl, combine the soy sauce, Mirin, chili sauce, ginger, garlic, sugar and oil. Add scallops and toss well. Set aside to marinate for 1/2 hour under refrigeration. Cook the bacon until lightly browned but only about half cooked. It must still be flexible enough to wrap around the scallops. Cut each piece in half. Preheat your oven to 450 degrees. Remove the scallops from the marinade and pat dry. Wrap each scallop in a piece of bacon and secure it with a toothpick. Place the wrapped scallops on a broiler pan and cook for about 6 minutes until bacon is crispy and the scallops are firm. Serve immediately.

Yield: 24 pieces

  • Good recipe. I see you don't actually broil, but bake at a high temp..... I do or used to do a lot of variations of your recipe. I make my own curry..... I don't like adding sugar to any seasoning or marinade like this or sauce. Also, I use rice vinegar instead and powdered garlic and onion (cheaper for me). And with the cost of oil here for me lately, I still like corn oil ....... since we use so little. Again, just cost effective to me.
