Grilled Bacon Wrapped Scallops

I had a Cookout a few weekends ago and my BIL brought bacon wrapped scallops. They were delish. Ever since, I've wanted them again, as has my middle child. Well, Target just happen to have JUMBO scallops on sale in time for Memorial Day, so I picked up some for myself. I added my own basting "sauce" (?) and voila! Yumm-o on Memorial Day!

24-30 Jumbo Scallops
1/2 lb sliced bacon (I like the thin sliced for grilling)
1 stick butter
2 Tbsp minced garlic
2 Tbsp parsley flakes
1/4 tsp salt

If using bamboo skewers , soak in warm water for at least 30 minutes. Cut bacon strips in half, wrap around scallop and secure onto skewer. Continue until all scallops are secure. Melt butter and spices; brush onto both sides of skewers. Grill over Med-Low heat, turning occasionally, until desired doneness.

**Note: I used the same butter mixture for shrimp skewers too.
