LIGHTLY RINSE THE SCALLOPS and drain thoroughly. Slice any very thick ones in half horizontally.
Heat a broiler or prepare a medium hot fire for grilling.
Combine the Plum Sauce ingredients and blend well. Cut the strips of bacon in half. Place the scallops in a bowl, ad half the sauce, and toss lightly to coat. Wrap a piece of bacon around each scallop and thread onto the bamboo skewers. If broiling the scallops, cover a cookie sheet with aluminum foil and arrange the skewered scallops on top. Place the scallops about 3 inches from the heat source and broil or grill, basting with the remaining sauce, for about 8 to 9 minutes on each side, or until the bacon is cooked. Serve hot.
