  • 2 Slices thick cut bacon, cut into batons (1/4 inch strips)
  • 2 Ears corn, cut off the cob

  1. Prep your scallops by sprinkling with kosher salt while you prep the remaining ingredients. Before cooking pat dry very well.
  2. Mix the sherry vinegar in the tomatoes and season with salt and pepper. Set aside.
  3. In a large skillet over medium heat, cook the bacon to crisp tender and remove to drain. . Pour off half the bacon fat and reserve.
  4. Cook the corn kernels in half the bacon fat until crisp tender about 5 mins. Season with salt and pepper Set aside.
