    1. Preheat a BBQ for medium heat. Soak 12 bamboo skewers in water (to prevent burning on the BBQ). Combine the lemon zest, juice and honey. Set aside.
    2. Season scallops with salt and pepper. Wrap scallops, figs and strawberries in bacon. Place one scallop and one strawberry or fig, on each skewer.
    3. Lightly oil cooking grate. Place skewers on preheated barbecue; cook for 6 to 8 minutes per side, brushing with lemon glaze, until bacon is crispy and scallops are cooked through.


    You can use different fruits to change the flavour or to accommodate what you have to hand.

    The natural sugar in strawberry/figs and smoky flavor of the bacon really makes this appetizer so good. The scallop also very appetizing!  -  07 Aug 2012


    I could not get figs so I substituted a raw King Prawn, bacon wrapped, instead. The recipe turned out well and the skewers disappeared.  -  21 Jul 2013
