Ingredients
  • 4 scallops per person
  • 2 rashers bacon per person
  • salt & pepper
  • 1 tsp Butter ghee or oil to brush
Instructions
  1. Light your BBQ and wait until the coals are white and ashy before you start cooking.
  2. Rinse the scallops in cold water and pat dry with some kitchen paper.
  3. Lay out your rasher of bacon and using a blunt knife, scrape the bacon t stretch it and make it very thin.
  4. Cut each rasher in half, lay on your scallop in the centre and season lightly with salt & pepper.
  5. Fold the bacon over the scallop, ensuring there is an area where the bacon is doubled up.
  6. Pierce your metal BBQ skewers (or wooden skewers previously soaked in cold water for 30 mintues) through the double thickness of bacon to hold it together, and right through the other side of the scallop.
  7. Brush with melted butter, ghee or oil & place of a hot grill for a few 3-5 minutes each side.
