Keto BBQ Scallops Bacon-Wrapped

Keto BBQ Scallops Bacon-Wrapped


* Optional Substitution Note

for 8 wrapped jumbo scallops:

  • 1 lb jumbo scallops, about 8
  • 8 slices of beef bacon
    • substitutes: turkey bacon, pork bacon
  • BBQ paste:
    • 1 1/4  tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
    • 2 heaping teaspoons smoked paprika
    • 1 tablespoon coconut sugar
  • Garnish
    • chopped cilantro
    • sea salt & pepper
  • Utensils
    • wooden skewers, flat recommended


Step 1

Fire up the grill (or oven). I got my grill to 375F. You want it hot enough to crisp the edges of the bacon after a few minutes.

Step 2

Place wooden kabob skewers in water. They should soak for at least 20 minutes before placing on the grill in order to mitigate the risk of them burning or catching fire.

Step 3

Wrap a piece of (your choice of) bacon around a jumbo scallop.  Skewer it with the wooden kabob stick.  Repeat for the remaining scallops.  Note: I recommend putting no more than 3 wraps on each skewer since you don’t want the kabobs sticks breaking under the weight once you begin handling it.

Step 4

Mix together the ingredients for the paste, then lightly brush it on the kabob sticks. And if you want to avoid adding more oil, you can spray the kabobs with olive oil and then dust them with the ingredients instead. Choice is yours!

Step 5

Place the kabobs on the grill and cook for about 8 minutes, then flip them over. Cook for an additional 8 – 10 minutes, or until the outside edges of the bacon get crispy!

Step 6

Remove the scallops from the grill/heat, allow them to slightly cool, then garnish.

Step 7

Remove the scallops from the kabobs and enjoy with the green salad!
