Directions See How It's Made
- Place shrimp next to each other on a bamboo skewer, leaving room on either end. Make sure to cover the end of the skewer with foil so it doesn't burn.
- Wrap one piece of bacon around each scallop and place scallops on a two-pronged skewer so they don't turn.
- Brush both sides of the shrimp and scallops with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
- Place the shrimp and scallops on a medium hot grill. Keep an eye on them because they will cook quickly and you don't want to burn them.
- Grill shrimp and scallops for approximately 2-3 minutes per side. Take them off the grill when they are about 80 percent done.
- Add the Peach Bourbon BBQ sauce during the last moments of cooking or when the cooking is complete for added flavor.
- Peach Bourbon BBQ Sauce Instructions.
- Combine all ingredients in a small sauce pan.

- Cool and blend in a food processor or blender until smooth.
