Our take on this popular appetizer involves the addition of smoked paprika to give great warmth to the flavors of the dish. The crisp bacon nicely compliments the tender scallops, while infusing them with a smoky yet sweet flavor.

We made these for a dinner party with friends and they were a hit! I bought monster sized scallops from Whole Foods and they were too big for the 1/2 slice of bacon, so we cut each scallop in half and put 2 per skewer. The scallops were a bit pricey, but it’s a nice treat to have every so often and a nice appetizer to bring over to a friend’s dinner party.
I made these and they were delicious! I had no idea smoked paprika was spicy lol. I also made some bacon wrapped chestnuts with the smoked paprika – yum!
Sounds good, I make bacon and scallops and broil them, never thought of smoked paprika, never had smoked paprika before I tried 1 of the recipes that spare ribs called for it, such a handy spice to have on hand.
Delicious! I will be making this again, and soon!
