Servings: 16


  • 16 Alaska Scallops patted dry
  • 16 bacon slices fully cooked to pliable, not crisp
  • 2 cups mayonnaise
  • 4 tsp smoked paprika
  •  cup olive oil
  • 3 cups sliced red onion
  •  cup balsamic vinegar
  • 16 mini-hamburger buns split
  • 16 small 3-inch lettuce leaves


  • Step 1: Make the sauce
    Blend mayonnaise and smoked paprika in a bowl; set aside.
  • Step 2: Prepare onions
    Heat olive oil over medium heat in a large pan. Stir in onions; cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Add balsamic vinegar and simmer one minute. Remove from heat and keep warm.
  • Step 3: Prepare scallops
    Wrap each Alaska Scallop with a cooked bacon slice. Grill or sauté scallops for 2 to 3 minutes per side, cooking just until scallops are opaque and bacon is crisp.
  • Step 4: Prepare sliders and serve
    Place buns on grill and lightly toast. To serve, spread about 1 tablespoon mayonnaise on cut side of each bun. Place about 2 tablespoons onions on the bun bottoms, top with a bacon-wrapped scallop and lettuce leaf, then close with bun tops.
