BACON-WRAPPED ALASKA SCALLOP SLIDERS
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Makes: 16 servings
2 cups mayonnaise
4 teaspoons pimenton (smoked paprika)
1/8 cup olive oil
5 medium or 3 cups sliced red onion
1/8 cup balsamic vinegar
16 large Alaska Weathervane Scallops, patted dry
16 bacon slices, fully-cooked but not crisp
16 mini hamburger buns, split
16 small (3-inch) lettuce leaves
Blend mayonnaise and pimenton in a bowl; set aside.
Heat olive oil over medium heat in a large pan. Stir in onions; cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Add balsamic vinegar and simmer one minute. Remove from heat and keep warm.
Wrap each Alaska Scallop with a cooked bacon slice. Grill or sauté scallops for 2 to 3 minutes per side, until scallops are opaque and bacon is crisp.
Place buns on grill and lightly toast. For each serving, spread about 1 tablespoon mayonnaise on cut side of each bun. Place about 2 tablespoons onions on the bun bottoms, top with a bacon-wrapped scallop and lettuce leaf, then close with bun tops.
