  • Walnut Sauce:

  • 2 cups water

  • ¼ cup chopped walnuts

  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice

  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon zest

  • 4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

  • Remaining Ingredients:

  • 1 pound turkey bacon

  • 12 ounces large sea scallops (16 - 20)

  • 1 pound spinach


1. Bring the water to a boil in a small saucepan. Add the walnuts and boil for 30 seconds, then drain. Put the walnuts in a bowl, and combine with the lemon juice, lemon rind, olive oil, salt, and pepper. Mix well and set aside. 2. Cut the slices of turkey bacon in half. Wrap a piece of bacon around a scallop and slip onto a skewer. Baste the scallops with the peanut oil. Broil the scallops for 5 minutes, turn, baste, and broil the other side for 5 minutes. 3. Wash the spinach leaves thoroughly. Serve the scallops over spinach and top with the walnut sauce.
