Laksa-Style Scallops with Sweet Chili Sauce

I was craving something sweet and spicy tonight so this is a Jamie Oliver recipe that I adapted and it turned out delicious. I hope you enjoy this recipe and enjoy the fun of creative cooking.

Here is how:
1. Wrap 8 scallops with 8 strips of bacon and secure them with a skewer. Bake the scallops at 400 degrees for approximately 10 minutes until the bacon is crisp and the scallops are opaque.

2. Cook 8 oz. of Thai rice noodles according to the package directions.

3. Drain the noodles and toss them with:
- 2 Tbs. fish sauce
- 2 cloves of garlic (minced)
- 1 Tbs. of fresh ginger (peeled and minced)
- 1 Tbs. sesame oil
- 2 Tbs. kaffir lime leaves
- 4 green onions (finely sliced)
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

4. Place the noodle mixture in a bowl and top them with 1 (14 oz.) can of coconut milk.

5. Place the scallops on top and drizzle sweet Thai chili sauce over them.

Here is to creative and fun cooking! xo
