1 lb. Scallops
4-5 Slices Bacon, diced
1 Clove Garlic, minced
2T Lemon or Lime Juice* (I prefer lime)
2T Reserved Bacon Grease
Lemon Pepper to taste (regular pepper is fine)
3 T White Wine
2 T Butter, softened
-In large skillet over medium heat, cook bacon until its crisp. Remove from pan, place on paper towel to absorb grease.
-Reserve 2 T rendered fat. Lightly pepper scallops. Place in pan, sear each side about 3 minutes per side. Once cooked, remove from pan.
-Add lemon/lime juice, garlic and white wine. Scrap any scraps off of bottom of pan, cook about 2 minutes.
-Remove pan from heat, add in butter, once butter is mixed in sauce, add bacon and scallops. Enjoy warm!
*if using lime juice only use 2tsp. Any more and it may be too tart.
