  • 9 bacon strips
  • 18 sea scallops (1-1/2 pounds)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon Sriracha chili sauce or 1-1/2 teaspoons hot pepper sauce
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1/2 cup canned sliced water chestnuts
  • 1 can (3 ounces) chow mein noodles


  1. Cut bacon strips in half widthwise. In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until partially cooked but not crisp. Remove to paper towels to drain.
  2. Wrap a bacon piece around each scallop; secure with toothpicks. Place on a greased baking sheet. Drizzle with oil; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Broil 6 in. from the heat for 4-5 minutes on each side or until scallops are firm and opaque.
  3. In a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, chili sauce and juice. Remove toothpicks from scallops. Top each with a slice of water chestnut; drizzle with mayonnaise mixture. Sprinkle with chow mein noodles.
