Firstly wash your hands, as you are handling seafood. Then separate the scallops from the shells ready for cooking. On a clean board now get the zucchini and cut into 24 very thin strips, and do the same with the bacon.
Now in a pan we are going to cook the bacon pieces with about a tsp of butter, once cooked place on paper towel to drain. Then cook the zucchini in a tsp of butter for a minute and place on paper towel to drain.
In a fry pan heat the remaining butter, olive oil and thyme then place the scallops in the pan, season on top with salt and pepper and cook for about 1 1/2 minutes then turn over and season the other side and cook for another 1 1/2 minute. If you have thicker scallops you might need to cook them longer.
