6 slices thick-cut bacon, divided1 can (20 oz.) DOLE Pineapple Tidbits
Place thick-cut bacon on a baking sheet lined with a silpat or foil. Bake 15 to 20 minutes until brown and cooked through but not crisp. Lay bacon on paper towel to drain. Meanwhile, drain pineapple tidbits reserving juice. Pour pineapple juice into a small sauce pan and bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium and reduce by 1/2 to create the glaze.

Wash scallops and pat dry. Cut in half length wise bacon (4 slices), wrap one bacon strip around each scallop and secure with a wooden pick. Finely chop remaining 2 slices of bacon; set aside. Place quinoa into medium sized saucepan and cook over medium heat until toasted, about 2 to 3 minutes.
1 can (14 oz.) vegetable broth1/2 tsp salt1/4 tsp black pepper
Add vegetable broth, salt and pepper and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, covered, until the liquid is absorbed, 10 to 15 minutes. Remove from heat and let sit covered.
