Bacon Wrapped Alaska Scallop Sliders

Makes 16 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 cups mayonnaise
  • 4 teaspoons smoked paprika
  • 1/8 cup olive oil
  • 3 cups sliced red onions
  • 1/8 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 16 large Alaska Scallops, patted dry
  • 16 bacon slices, fully-cooked but not crisp
  • 16 mini-hamburger buns, split
  • 16 small lettuce leaves (approximately 3-inch)
 

Directions

  1. Blend mayonnaise and smoked paprika in a bowl; set aside.
  2. Heat olive oil over medium heat in a large pan. Stir in onions; cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Add balsamic vinegar and simmer 1 minute. Remove from heat and keep warm.
  3. Wrap each scallop with a cooked bacon slice. Grill or saute scallops for 2-3 minutes per side, cooking just until scallops are opaque and bacon is crisp.
  4. Place buns on grill and lightly toast. To serve, spread about 1 tablespoon mayonnaise mixture on cut side of each bun. Place about 2 tablespoons of the cooked onions on each bun bottom, top with a bacon-wrapped scallop and lettuce leaf, then close with top buns.
