Directions:
Combine lime juice, cilantro, garlic, salt, pepper, and dash of hot sauce in a small mixing bowl; whisk in olive oil in a slow steady stream. Place scallops in a zip-lock plastic bag; add lime juice mixture. Cover or seal and chill 30 minutes, turning once. Drain scallops, discarding marinade.

Microwave bacon, covered with paper towels, in 4 batches, at high 3 to 4 minutes or until slightly brown. Wrap 1 bacon piece around each scallop, and secure with a wooden pick. Sprinkle evenly with salt and pepper.

Coat a cold cooking grate with cooking spray, and place grate on grill over medium-high heat 350 to 400 degrees. Place scallops on grate and grill, covered with grill lid, 3 to 4 minutes on each side or until bacon is crisp and scallops are done.
