      Delicious! I added a bit more orange zest and loved it. I grilled on a charcoal grill, and I'm afraid my bacon got a little brown, but the end result was spectacular. I'll be making this again. Thanks for sharing! Made for Spring PAC 2014.

      These scallops are very good! The family gobbled them up in no time flat. It is truly a sweet & savory meal, however it is time consuming to wrap all of the scallops in bacon, so I would suggest doing that step in advance. I also used toothpicks to hold the bacon on to the scallop and since I didn't have skewers, I just grilled them as is. Made for Photo tag.
