Posh Bacon Kilties



These are an absolute favourite and don't hang around long! Out of anything I've made I get asked for this recipe the most so enjoy!

 The quantities are just for guidance but you can be quite liberal with how much of everything you put in.
Goes without saying, CONTAINS SHELLFISH!

Prep time: At least 3.5 hours!(Don't let that put you off!)
Cook time: 20 minutes

Set oven to 200°C

~12 (Orkney!) Scallops (roes - the orange bit - kept on! Adds to the taste!)
500ml Maple Syrup
12 rashers of Streaky Bacon
Dash of soy sauce
1 tsp Dijon mustard
Sprinkling of brown sugar

Equipment: Baking tray, cocktail sticks, glass pyrex dish/bowl, cling film.

1. In the glass bowl mix together maple syrup, soy sauce and dijon mustard.

2. Put scallops into the mixture and cover with clingfilm. Marinade in the fridge for at least 3 hours but you'll get the best results if you leave them overnight!

3 Place bacon in strips on the baking tray and cook in the oven until opaque - just cooked, the crisping comes later.
4. and wrap around scallops - hold with cocktail stick. Cook until the scallops are opaque and the bacon is crisping up nicely. 

5. Remove the cocktail sticks and serve either straight from the oven or chilled - if you can leave them alone for that long!
