The Appetizer That Didn't Make It To the Table

Sunday, March 24, 2013

Happy Palm Sunday!!!
I hope you are having a great one.

This is the appetizer that didn't make it to the table because it was eaten rather quickly at the breakfast bar just as soon as it was brought in from the grill.  The dressing is supposed to he drizzled on, but a helper poured it on, so I had to make more dressing for the salad  :/

Grilled Bacon-wrapped Scallops

One doezen scallops
Six slices bacon
Four bamboo skewers
Citrus champagne vinaigrette (see recipe below)

1.   Slice bacon in half.  Wrap each scallop with a bacon half and place on a skewer.  You should have three scallops per skewer.
2.   Grill over hot coals for four minutes per side.
3.   Drizzle with vinaigrette.

Citrus Champagne Vinaigrette

1/3 c olive oil
2 T champaign vinegar
2 T orange juice
1/4 t crushed red pepper flakes

Mix all ingredients well in a small bowl with a whisk.

That's my "didn't quite make it to the table" story, and here's another table story via Anthropologie:

Until next time...

  1. Well, I can see why it never made it out of the kitchen!;>) Sounds wonderful!!! xo Diana

  2. I don't eat scallops, but those who do I'm sure it was a hit. '-)
    Love the Anthro video. I spy a dish or two I need to investigate. Wonder if they still have 20% off dishes? I forgot to go in when I received the email. Off to check their site. Thanks.......Sarah

  3. Sounds like something hubby would like

  4. That would barely have made into the kitchen here -- sounds so good!

  5. even the vinaigrette sounds fabulous!

  6. Those never make it from the kitchen. I've seen push people out of the way to get to them. ( might have been me. Shh don't tell ) lol
