    Medium-High heat, close the grill and cook for like 5-6 minutes.

    A good sauce for it would be honey, a light BBQ sauce, a touch of bourbon, and horse radish. :)

    Basted in fish oil, and salt and pepper. Were letting the bacon flavor it.

    I'm not a fan of fishoil personally. When I cook it on the barby, I preheat the grill for about 10 minutes with the lid shut then toss it on.

    I also use precooked bacon since sometimes the bacon doesn't cook all the way. I'll use a touch of ground black pepper occasionally since the black pepper in the shaker really isn't paper. Salt and scallops don't mix well in my taste buds IMO and IME.

    Enjoy your dinner you shell fish bandit.

    hmm. I left the seasoning to my wife otherwise I'd never hear the end of it. I trust her though. She has been putting good flavor in my mouth for the better part of nine years now.

    While I appreciate and agree with your advice, I got these particular scallops from a little private market 75 feet beneath the sea. ;)

    So they were fan frickin tastic. The bacon flavored them nicely. We ate them with a little of these special wasabi sauce. It's not wasabi that you get with sushi, but this stuff is made for accenting seafood. I'm not sure what it's called but it's green and delicious.

    Maki, that sounds so good. My recipe i actually grill them in a large clean scallop shell filled with Garlic and small bacon chunks over mesquite wood chips. They cook at a lower temperature for a longer time, really brings out the flavor of the smoke.

    When they are fresh, you can usually see a little pink in the center through the translucent outer flesh, when that translucency and pinkness goes away, you're close, I also spritz a little white wine on mine every couple a minutes. I usually grill them for about 20 minutes with my method...
    I've also occasionally tossed some cheese on them at the end..

    ^sounds delicious, but we chucked all the shells. Trust me, they had so much growth on them that you don't want those shells cooking. On another note some of these buttons were almost the size of small filet mignon. Some were orange in color too. Those were a little sweeter than the whiter ones.

    Well, being a two time BBQ title holder in the "anything but" category, you got a few good recipes...

    If you ever find yourself in my neck o the woods, feel free to drop me a line, I love to grill at the drop of a hat... any hat...
