Bacon-wrapped scallops

12 large sea scallops
12 halved strips of bacon
halved garlic powder
lemon juice
cayenne pepper
teriyaki sauce
olive oil spray

Wrap each halved scallop in a strip of bacon and secure with a toothpick.
Spray the scallops lightly with olive oil spray and sprinkle both sides with teriyaki sauce, garlic powder and a pinch of cayenne pepper.
Place in a baking dish and bake at 425 degrees F for 20 to 30 minutes.
Turn the scallops once before they are done so that both sides are the same colour.
