Marinaded scallops wrapped in bacon

In Australasia it seems quite normal to eat a lot of seafood in the summer, especially at Christmas which was when we had these. I was inspired by a recipe I found in the local paper but I've tweaked it for my own taste. These make a great appetiser and I hope you like them as much as I do!

You'll need:
3 x 300g bags of small scallops
2 packs of streaky bacon
¾ cup maple syrup
¼ cup soy sauce
1 tablespoon of dijon mustard
lots of toothpicks 
  1. Defrost your scallops if you need to by putting them into a bowl of water and covering for a few hours
  2. Combine the maple syrup, soy sauce and dijon mustard to make the marinade; add the defrosted scallops, stir so they're all coated and leave for an hour
  3. Take the streaky bacon and cut each slice in half so they're now short strips
  4. Wrap a strip around the outside of one scallop and pin in place with a toothpick; wrap all the scallops with the short bacon strips
  5. Once all scallops are wrapped place on a greased baking tray
  6. Cook them at 190 degrees C for 15 minutes on each side; this will turn the scallops opaque and the bacon will crisp. Everyone's oven is different mind so keep an eye on them!
