Seafood cooked on the Grill Dome is the best seafood you’ll eat…I think we all know this :)  Here’s a Bacon Wrapped Scallops with Jalapeño Mango Dipping Sauce appetizer recipe that is sure to impress your guests.  This is an easy one with little prep time and little cook time…so serve these up at your next party and stoke your friends out!

Jalapeño Mango Dipping Sauce

2 cups chopped mango
1/4 cup plain yogurt
1 Jalapeño, seeded and chopped
2 Tbsp chopped fresh cilantro
1 green onion, chopped
2 Tbsp fresh lime juice

Add all ingredients to a blender or food processor and blend until nice and creamy.

Bacon Wrapped Scallops

1-2 lbs large sea scallops
1 package of bacon (thick sliced preferred)
Seafood seasoning of your choice
Toothpicks or wooden skewers

Preheat the Grill Dome over direct heat to 350° and place the Sear Racks directly on top of the Main Cooking Grate.  Once preheated, spray the Sear Racks with a bit of cooking spray, then cook bacon until about half done.  We want the bacon to start looking a nice golden brown and a little bit crispy…but don’t want it cooked fully b/c it will continue to cook once wrapped around the scallops and cooked.

Once the bacon is done, wrap each scallop and secure it with a toothpick or wood skewer.  Season the scallops with your favorite seafood seasoning.  Cook scallops until an internal temp of 120° – 130° is reached.  Serve with the Jalapeño Mango Dipping Sauce on the side along with some freshly sliced mango.  Enjoy!
