Greendale Streaky Bacon Slices (you will need half a slice per Scallop)
150g Greendale Scallop Meat (these are ready-shucked King Scallops)
1 Lemon, half juiced, the other half cut into wedges for serving
*You will also need cocktail sticks, to secure; if wooden, soak them in water before using*

Serving suggestion: 
Black pudding
Cauliflower Puree


Preheat the oven to 180°C (Gas Mark 4). Cut the bacon slices into half-lengths, then wrap one piece of bacon around the outside of each scallop. Push a cocktail stick through each scallop to secure the bacon, then place the scallops on a baking tray and drizzle the lemon juice over them. Put them in the hot oven and cook for 15-20 minutes, or until the bacon has crisped up nicely, then serve with the lemon wedges.
