Fresh ground black pepper
Mayonnaise – 1 cup

Method Of Preparation:
Firstly you need to heat your broiler. Wrap each of the scallop in a bacon. Take a piece of bacon and wrap the scallop. How to keep it intact? Secure it using a toothpick. Make sure you secure it in a good way so that the bacon does not fall out while cooking it. Place the wrapped scallops on a baking sheet. Drizzle some olive oil on it and season with salt and pepper. Season it well. Cook these wrapped scallops under broiler for 15 minutes till the bacon gets cooked. It should get cooked through. You only need to turn it once. When you turn it once, it will be enough for cooking it.
Now you need to make the yummy spicy mayo. It is very easy to make. All you need to do is combine the lime juice, chili paste, mayonnaise and the chopped fresh cilantro. Stir it well and refrigerate it till it gets ready to eat! Do not freeze it. Make sure when you are combining, it should get a creamy texture.
Now comes the good part – to make your dish look, you need to serve it artistically. For the serving, you need to peel the lettuce leave and take a platter and line it up with yummy lettuce cups. Make sure you use fresh lettuce to make the lettuce cups. Top each of the cup with a wrapped scallop and two slices of avocado. Put a spoonful of the mayonnaise on the side of the lettuce cup. Garnish it with the fresh cilantro leaves.
