Barbecued scallops in bacon & sage

Barbecued scallops in bacon & sage

Just because the sun hasn't been seen for weeks, doesn't mean you have to give up barbecuing - just make these lovely scallops indoors!

Serves: 4-5 as a starter

What you need:

  • 10 king scallops, shucked and without the roe
  • 20 fresh basil or sage leaves
  • 10 rashers streaky bacon, halved
  • 150ml (5 fl oz) prepared flavoured oil, e.g. garlic or herb

What you do:

  1. Preheat grill or barbecue
  2. Cut large scallops in half horizontally to make 2 rounds. Place two basil or sage leaves on top of each scallop.
  3. Stretch the bacon with the back of a knife and wrap each bacon strip around one scallop, then wrap a second (if used) across the first, to enclose the scallop.
  4. Thread each scallop onto 2 pre-soaked wooden skewers, brush with the garlic or herb flavoured oil and place onto a prepared foil-lined barbecue or grill, or griddle pan placed directly onto the barbecue.
  5. Cook for 1-2 minutes, turning once and serve immediately.
