    alligirl's Note:

    'If you can't find fresh sea scallops, use peeled large shrimp, leaving the tails on. Rice pilaf or orzo would be a good accompaniment.' Taken from professional-cooking.com for ZWT. **I soak my bamboo skewers in a pitcher!

      This is such a unique treatment for scallops! I loved it!! So easy to make, and just delicious! Just before grilling, I threw the bay leaf into the oil marinade, just to soften them up. They added a wonderful flavor. I just wish I'd made more! Thanks for sharing.....made for Holiday Tag.

      This recipe is a real treat. I used frozene medium sized sea scallops. I prepared the scallops and skewered them in the early afternoon and let them sit in the fridge until dinner time then grilled them on my griddler only took 7 minutes. We really enjoyed our dinner
