Ingredients

  • 2 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1 tsp. grated lemon zest
  • 2 tsp. sesame oil
  • 2 Tbsp. chili sauce
  • ⅛ tsp. cayenne pepper
  • 1 lb. sea scallops
  • 4 strips bacon
  • 1 small onion, peeled and cut into 8 pieces

Directions

  • Prepare and preheat grill.
  • In medium bowl, combine lemon juice, zest, sesame oil, chili sauce, and cayenne pepper and mix well. Add scallops and toss to coat. Let stand for 15 minutes.
  • Start each skewer with a piece of onion. Then skewer through one end of the bacon, and then add a scallop. Curve the bacon around the scallop and thread onto the skewer so it surrounds the scallop halfway. Repeat with 3 to 4 more scallops and the bacon slice.
