Servings: 12

Here’s the ingredients list:

  • 4 Tablespoons coconut oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • dash of sweet paprika
  • dash of salt and pepper
  • 6 slices nitrate free bacon, cut in half lengthwise
  • 12 fresh scallops

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.  Lightly grease a baking sheet with coconut oil and set aside.

Over very low heat, in a small saucepan, melt the coconut oil. Remove from heat and pour into a small bowl. Add the garlic, paprika, salt and pepper.

Dip each scallop in the seasoned coconut oil, the wrap with bacon and secure with a toothpick. Place on prepared baking sheet.

Bake for 15 minutes or until the scallops are cooked through and the bacon is crisp.

Serve immediately.
