Today's recipe is for bacon-wrapped scallops grilled on the Gourmet Guru Grill and then finished with a delicious Sex on the Beach Glaze.
Using lump charcoal, heat your Gourmet Guru Kamado Style Grill to approximately 450 degrees. We will cook the scallops on direct heat. I like to use a Grillaholics grill matt for easy management of the scallops on the grill, but that is optional. You can grill direct on the grates, but make sure to oil the grates first to prevent your scallops from sticking.
While the Gourmet Guru Grill is heating, we will start by making the Sex on the Beach sauce.
• Butter, 1 Tablespoon
• Vodka, 2 Shots
• Peach Schnapps, 1 Shot
• Cranberry Juice, 2 Shots
• Orange Juice, 2 Shots
• 8 to 12 Large Sea Scallops
• 4 to 6 Slices Bacon cut in half. You will need 1 slice of bacon for 2 scallops
• 2 tablspoons cracked fresh black pepper. I like to use larger size granules and not finely ground pepper.
Place all the sauce ingredients in a small pan. Heat on medium and simmer until the sauce thickens. You want to reduce the sauce to a “syrup-like” consistency. This should take 10 to 15 minutes.
While your sauce is reducing, wrap each scallop with 1/2 slice of bacon. Secure the bacon to each scallop with a toothpick. Place the pepper in a small plate or bowl. Now, dip the top and bottom of each scallop in the cracked pepper.
Grill the scallops for approximately 6 minutes. Grill the top and bottom for 1 minute each and then grill the sides rotating every minute to get the bacon cooked.
Remove the scallops from the grill and pour your Sex on the Beach sauce over the bacon-wrapped scallops. Grab your favorite beverage and enjoy the best scallops on the planet!
