Sea Scallops with Bacon and Spinach

I made some quick and easy scallops tonight.  Very rich and delicious; bacon and spinach go so well with seafood.  I served it over a combination of rice and orzo  and had some crusty bread on the side.  It could have used some herbs perhaps but the simple salt and pepper combination worked well while letting the flavors stand out on their own.

Sea Scallops with Bacon and Spinach

  • 4 strips bacon
  • 12 o.z. scallops
  • 3 o.z. spinach
  • salt and pepper

Cut bacon into small pieces. Fry over medium heat until crispy about 5 minutes.

Remove from skillet and drain on paper towels.

Reserve bacon grease in skillet.  Drain scallops well and heat bacon grease over medium high heat.

Add skillet to hot bacon fat and sear on one side for 2 minutes.

Sprinkle with salt and pepper.  Flip over scallops.  Top with spinach; cover with lid and cook for an additional minute or two.

Serve over rice or pasta.

Enjoy ~ Kimberly
