The smokey taste of the bacon enhances the sweet flavor of the scallops. These skewers are even more special cooked over oak chips on the barbeque. Scallops can vary enormously in size. If using small ones, double the number and wrap two in each slice of prosciutto. This serves four as a main course served with rice and salad. If using wooden skewers, soak in cold water for 30 mins before using to avoid burning.
