Bacon Wrapped Scallops
1 package rashers
1 pound scallops, rinsed and dried with muscle removed
2 tablespoons fresh sage, minced
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 lemon, cut into wedges
Soak the toothpicks in water for about 30 minutes, so they don't burn on the grill.
Parboil the bacon strips for about 3 minutes and set aside.
Wrap a piece of blanched bacon around each scallop and thread with a toothpick to keep together.
Transfer the wrapped scallops onto a plate.
Sprinkle the scallops with sage and drizzle with the olive oil and lemon juice.
Grill the scallops for 2 to 3 minutes per side over a medium hot fire.
Remove the scallops from the grill and serve hot with lemon wedges.
Makes about 1 dozen appetizers.
