Seared Scallops with Bacon Vinaigrette

Seared Scallops with Bacon Vinaigrette
Cook / Prep Time: 25 min

If you haven’t tried our fresh Qualicum beach scallops, you’ve been missing out.  They are so different from the previously frozen watery nova scotia scallops.  Qualium scallops are firm, sweet and tender.  They are so meaty you can eat them as a main course.  And who doesn’t like a little bacon with their scallops? – Jen
