“Motu means "little island" in the Tahitian language. These bacon-wrapped scallop kabobs are so delicious. I love the glaze and all of veggies and fruit. From chef Keith Famie. I like to serve this over rice. Enjoy!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Prep your outdoor grill and heat to about medium-high.
  2. Glaze:
  3. In a saucepan over medium-low heat, whisk the ingredients together. Simmer until it reduces by half.
  4. To Assemble Kabobs:
  5. Wrap each scallop with 1 piece of bacon. On each skewer, pierce a piece of red onion and push it to 1/2 inch form the bottom of the skewer. Pierce the scallop through the bacon and push it down to the red onion (leaving a little space). Pierce a chunk of mango, a piece of red pepper, one more bacon wrapped scallop and finally a chunk of pineapple. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Continue until all 8 skewers are completed.
  6. Put the kabobs on the outdoor grill and brush with the glaze to coat completely. Cook for about 2 minutes, rotate the skewers and reglaze. Repeat this step two more times. Reglaze and and serve hot!
