Mouth-watering!! This is a truly excellent recipe. I added garlic and lemon juice to the melted butter and sprinkled on Old Bay before wrapping the scallops. I grilled them in a grill basket rather than bothering with toothpicks or skewers. We devoured these!!!

I love recipes that can be prepared ahead, are quick and easy, and so good. I made these ahead, refrigerated them and threw them on the grill as an appetizer. I reduced about one cup of heavy cream, 2 Tablespoons maple syrup, and 1 heaping Tablespoon dijon mustard and served as a sauce on the side (use caution, I didn't measure, so this is a guess). Fabulous!

Delicious and rich. Boyfriend said they were the best scallops he ever had. I put three wrapped scallops on two skewers and served on pasta.
