Scallops and Bacon Salad Starter
Scallops and Bacon Salad Starter



  • 24 scallops
  • 8 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 12 thin rashers of streaky bacon
  • 2 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp runny honey
  • 2 tsp chopped capers
  • 4 tbsp chopped parsley
  • Mix 2 tbsp of olive oil and lemon juice in a bowl with some seasoning, and pour all over the scallops on a plate. Leave for 15 mins - the scallops will turn white. Cut each rasher of bacon in half horizontally, and wrap each around a scallop. Secure with a cocktail stick.
  • Whisk together 2 tbsp lemon juice with the mustard, salt, pepper, and honey. Whisk in 6 tbsp of olive oil until the dressing has thickened, the stir in the parsley and capers. Preheat the grill to hot, then lay the scallops in one layer on a grill pan. Grill for 4 mins on each side, or until the bacon is crisp. Place three scallops onto each serving plate, dress with salad leaves, and spoon over your dressing.
