BBQ-Rubbed Seared Scallops on the Grill

BBQ Rubbed Seared Scallops

Today I’m making an extremely simple seared scallop recipe, where the scallop flavor is at the forefront with a nice, subtle BBQ-bacon flavor on the back-end. Personally, I don’t like a lot of strong flavors overwhelming the natural flavors of the seafood.

• 2 tsp of Bone Suckin’ Rub or your favorite BBQ seasoning
• ½ tsp Ground Cumin
• 1 tsp minced garlic
• Salt and pepper to taste
• 1 pound of scallops
• 4 tbsp. (divided) olive oil
• 1 teaspoon of fresh orange juice. You can also use lime juice.
• 2-3 strips of cooked bacon
• ½ cup of white wine. I’m using Muscadine Honey Wine (mead).

BBQ Rubbed Seared Scallop Ingredients

Combine the Bone Suckin’ Rub or your favorite BBQ seasoning, cumin, minced garlic, salt and pepper in a zip-loc bag. Add the scallops to the bag and shake well to get them covered.

Set the grill to medium-high, with 2 tablespoons of olive oil and heat. Place scallops in the pan and let sit or about a 1.5 to 2 minutes, then turn over and cook the other side for 1.5 minutes.

Remove the scallops from skillet.

In the same skillet, add the Muscadine honey wine (mead), 2 tablespoons of olive oil and cook until it starts to thicken. While this is thickening, grind-up the bacon. Once the scallops are nice and coated in the heated mixture, top with the crumbled bacon and serve!
