Miller, this one is really devine! We prepared these this weekend and follow your recipe and directions entirely. What we discovered was the most delicious scallops I have ever tasted. They came out light and tender and the bacon & lemon really set the flavors. First time my husband ever tried scallops and now he wants more this weekend. Personally I can't wait. So easy and so tasty. Thank you for sharing this one!

I've made this a couple of times, it's wonderful! I like to alternate shrimp and scallops on the skewers. Yummy!
