Spinach Salad With Grilled Apple Cured Bacon Wrapped Sea Scallop

I cobbled this salad together one summer evening, while sipping on some chardonay in the kitchen. It was so easy and good that now it’s one of our summer staples. I’ve tried this in many different variations, substituting ingredients like Blue Chees instead of Feta, Marinating and pan searing, the scallops in reserved bacon fat and Olive Oil, making my own jumbo crutons. No matter how I vary it, the combo of Warm Bacon, Scallops and eggs over spinach salad is just delicious.

BBQ Curried Scallops in Shell

A slightly different way to cook curried scallops on a barbecue grill plate. The curry paste can be made before hand so they can be quickly slapped on the BBQ at your next get together. They were quite hot with the home-made curry powder I used but are made for a side dish of only one or two each scallops. Besides you should never be having a BBQ without a cold beer in hand!
