"Okay, they're not really rumaki, but they're good anyway. From Southern Living. Don't eat the toothpicks!"

  1. Terrific recipe! Simple and quick to make, and delicious - loved the ginger. I used ready-to-eat bacon which made this even simpler. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
  2. p.s. I already posted my (rave) review, but I forgot to say what I did....<br/><br/>I mixed the ginger, onions and lemon juice, adding crushed garlic and a little e.v. olive oil, in a bowl, tossed in the scallops and marinated them for a few minutes while cooking the bacon. Then I threaded them onto short satay sticks (3 per stick) and grilled them on the bbq. Served on a lettuce leaf. <br/><br/>DH actually decided to pull out the stick and wrap them in the lettuce leaf and munch as a healthy wrap! Wonderful!
  3. Very good and quick and easy! Thanks for sharing!
  4. These were lovely chocolatl, we really enjoyed the addition of the ginger and green onions, to the bacon wrapped scallops. It brought a little something something to the game. A new depth. Quick and easy to make with excellent results. Made for the Witchin Kitchen ZWT7 tour.
  5. Incredible! Loved the ginger, which I think really gave a different spin on this. Unfortunately, my center cut bacon was a little short, so the halves were not large enough to wrap around the scallops. I will DEFINITELY be making these again! Thanks for sharing. Made for ZWT7.
