Makes 12

You're probably tired of me telling you that there are things you should keep in your freezer for last minute appetite supression. Scallops are one of them because they freeze really well and defrost quickly. Sea scallops are the big ones and bay scallops are the little guys - this recipe uses the big boys.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound sea scallops, defrosted
  • 12 slices 'ready bacon' - the already cooked and ready to go kind
  • 1/4 cup teriyaki sauce
  • 2 long metal skewers - or 2 long wooden ones
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds

Steps

  1. Preheat bbq or grill pan on high
  2. Wrap each scallop with a slice of bacon and skewer - 6 to a skewer, make sure they stay tightly wrapped
  3. Spray bbq or grill pan with non-stick spray, and lay down the skewers - don't move 'em
  4. Let them get cook for 2-3 minutes until really good grill marks develop, then flip over
  5. Brush top with sauce and grill 2nd side about 2 more minutes or until that side looks equally as cool
  6. Remove and brush just cooked side with sauce
  7. Put on a serving plate and sprinkle with sesame seeds before serving
