Grilled bacon wrapped scallops

All the kids and a few of their significant others came home this weekend to help celebrate my birthday.We had hamburgers with both gluten free and regular buns. Java and Bean, the kids who need to eat GFCF, said that it wouldn't bother them to have regular buns on the table for the gluten eaters. We had some cheese on the table, too! After we got the results of the GI panel we were told we could try a little cheese once in a while. Bean had a slice on his burger, Java chose not to.

We also had broccoli slaw, potato salad, a big bowl of fresh salsa, tortilla chips, and a GFCF chocolate birthday cake with fresh strawberries and our favorite GFCF whipped topping.

But the highlight for me were the grilled bacon wrapped scallops.

They were my birthday present to me! I bought good quality frozen scallops, coated them in EVOO, sprinked them with smoked paprika and sea salt and then wrapped them in bacon. The hubster grilled them to perfection, just a few minutes on each side. They were tender and delicious and my mouth is watering all over again just thinking about them. This may have to be a new birthday tradition.
