Marinated Scallops Wrapped in Bacon
I did alter this to fit my needs....but the basic idea was the same. It was fantastic! I marinated jumbo scallops in the maple syrup/soy sauce/mustard mix for about an hour. I got my charcoal grill good and got, and lined it with non-stick foil. I then grilled the scallops for about 8 minutes on each side (I like them a bit well done). So delicious :)

Tropical Shrimp Dipping Sauce
I thought this was VERY good!!! I sliced about 1/2 inch deep down one side of a pineapple (top to bottom) and scooped out the insides, then used the scooped out pineapple as a serving bowl for this sauce. I served this with coconut shrimp on platter...the presentation was lovely!

Cold Crawfish Dip
I made this for a poker game, that had a New Orleans theme. I bought the crawfish from the ONLY fresh(ish) seafood store in town. They sold the Crawfish tails in a one pound bag, frozen, for $14.99.....SO this made for a VERY expensive dip.....but it was worth it :) I would most definitely recommend this dip to someone who could get a great deal on Crawfish. Everyone loved it and kept coming back for more.
