Grilled Bacon Wrapped Scallops - Instructions

Soak the toothpicks in water for about 30 minutes to insure they do not burn on the
grill. In a 12" sauté pan, bring 2" or water to a simmer. Place the bacon strips in
the water and parboil* the bacon strips for about 3 minutes. Set aside. Wrap piece of
bacon around each scallop and thread with a toothpick to keep together. Transfer the
wrapped scallops onto a baking sheet (with sides). Grill the scallops for 2-3 minutes
per side over a medium hot fire. Remove the scallops from the grill and serve hot with
lemon wedges.

*Partially cooking food by boiling it in water before it is finished cooking using
another method
