Seasoned Scallops Over Spinach

I still had some leftover bacon from Sunday's wrapped dates, so I thought I'd add it to tonight's dinner. Who ever really gets tired of bacon? Add bacon and Scallops are such a wonderful combination. It made for a tasty and filling Paleo dinner. Hope you enjoy!

1 lb. scallops
Seasonings for scallops:
1 T dried parsley
2 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. black pepper
1/2 tsp. paprika
8 slices bacon
16 oz fresh spinach
1 tsp olive oil
1 yellow onion, sliced
2 cloves garlic, minced
splash chicken broth (low sodium, organic)
splash lemon juice

Cook the bacon in a skillet, and set bacon aside, reserving bacon fat! Toss the scallops in the the seasoning mixture until well coated. Brown scallops in the bacon fat until they're cooked all the way though. Remove from heat.
Saute onion and garlic in olive oil, when onion starts to brown add splash of chicken broth and add spinach. Toss well, and let it cook down. Add scallops to spinach mixture. Add a splash of the lemon juice, serve onto your plate, and sprinkle with a little coarsely chopped bacon pieces.

Hey Kelly!
What do you look for when buying bacon? Is there a brand you like best?
