A quick and easy coastal favorite for the grill.
Partially cook bacon in a large skillet. Wrap each scallop with 1 half slice bacon. Set aside.
Bring syrup to a boil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Cook, uncovered, until reduced to 2/3 cup (about 5 minutes). Remove from heat; stir in butter and next 3 ingredients.
Thread bacon-wrapped scallops onto 12 (10- to 12-inch) skewers; brush syrup mixture over kabobs. Coat grill grate with vegetable cooking spray; place on grill over medium-high heat (350 to 400 degrees). Place kabobs on grate. Grill kabobs, covered with grill lid, 3 to 4 minutes on each side or just until scallops are opaque, basting often. Garnish, if desired.
To prevent scallops from rotating on the skewer, use 2 skewers for each kabob.
bubbajoe 4y agoGreat recipe. Cut the maple sauce in half for a small group. Also used it on shrimp.

Mlreyes 5y agoJust made this for dinner. It was great - a big hit with the family. We had a lot of unused maple syrup mixture, but other than that, the recipe was perfect! It's a new favorite!
