I recommend using medium-size sea scallops that are all about the same size so that they each take the same amount of time to cook. You can wrap the scallops with center-cut bacon—a shorter bacon strip—or you can use the standard-size bacon and just cut off the ends. What’s nice about this dish is that you can make it a couple hours ahead of time by preparing the pico de gallo and sauce, baking the scallops, wrapping them with bacon, and then storing them covered in the refrigerator until grill time. When you are ready to serve the dish, make the crispy onions rings, grill the scallops, and serve them with the sauce poured over the top.
