Add 1tblsp of heavy whipping cream. Cook it for a few minutes to thicken then add the scallops and the reserved liquid. Cook the scallops for another 2 -3 min until done. Place scallops on plate and pour the sauce over them. Garnish with fresh chopped chives! Easy and delicious! The bacon used was blackpepper bacon that was cured and cold smoked over hickory. The link below is how i make my bacon.
That looks amazing

Quick variation for you if you ever have more scallops than you can eat for dinner.

Everything you did with Jumbo or Diver scallops, added with the bacon and a little of the sauce and place on top of well toasted English muffins. Mix sauce with an egg yolk and whisk under a double boiler. Add poached egg rare/medium rare on top of the scallop and bacon and drizzle the hollandaise on top. MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM

Or as I prepare: Bacon wrapped scallop eggs benedict with citrus/habanero hollandaise.
