NOTE: Wooden/Bamboo skewers, will burn easily over a hot grill. Soak them in warm water for 15 to 30 minutes before threading this ensures they will not cook or burn along with the food


Step 1

In a bowl, combine the first 7 ingredients to make a marinade.

Step 2

Rinse and clean the scallops and stir into the marinade; leave scallops in marinade for 1 1/2 hours.

Step 3

Drain the scallops from the marinade and wrap each scallop in a piece of bacon and thread onto skewers ~ If preferred cut bacon into suitable pieces, depending on the size of the scallops, and wrap them around the scallop.

Step 4

Grill for 5-7 minutes.

Step 5

The bacon should be crisp, so turn the scallops once or twice during cooking and be careful not to overcook.
