Scrumptious scallops

About this recipe: I kept creating a bacon and pear salad every day at work for my lunch and then a brainwave came along. I love scallops, crispy bacon goes with scallops, pear goes with crispy bacon……. Hmmmm. How about pear puree, crispy bacon and scallops – it was lovely, even if I do say so myself!
