    Those look really great! I like the idea of wrapping them in proscuitto!!!! I have been thinking about doing bacon wrapped scallops, but I was a little scared that I would be controlling the cook to get the bacon right and ignoring the scallop. This way you get flavor of the wonderful proscuitto and need not worry about cooking it.[p]I have never used the rosemary skewers. No doubt it looks great, but does it really impart a taste you can detect?

    BobS, Truthfully - I thought the rosemary flavor would have been a little stronger. It left just a very subtle taste. Maybe next time a little minced rosemary on top might be a little better. I did brush these with olive oil and sprinkled some lemon juice and pepper on them.
    Most eggsellent !!!

    Those look great! What was the time and temp. for the cook?

  • MemphisMemphis Posts: 144
    egret, Very simple - Hot and fast. Didnot take the temp but hot enough to get a good sear - not burnt but seared. About 2 -3 minutes per side. I like mine med rarish.

    Looks great! Did you marinate the scallops?

  • MemphisMemphis Posts: 144
    cecil, Not really - Just brushed them with some olive oil then a little pepper and a squeeze of lemon juice about 10-15 m inutes before grilling. And then a squirt of lemon juice after grilling. Tried to keep the flavors very simple because scallops are so delicate yet so damn tasty !!!
