Bacon Wrapped Scallops with Aleppo Pepper Butter

We had lots of fresh produce and pasta from our garden and the local farmers market which we decided to pair with some bacon wrapped scallops...very simple.  The scallops were seasoned with salt and pepper and wrapped with bacon.  They were skewered and cooked on the Weber for 3 min on a side.  One trick is to pre-cook the bacon in the microwave for about 30 seconds to make it pliable and start the cooking process so the bacon gets crispy on the grill.  Melt about 3T butter in the microwave and add 1t ground Aleppo pepper (adjust for you own degree of heat).  You could use any form for pepper you wished, cayenne, Tabasco....or none.  Drizzle the butter on the scallops just before serving.  The tomatoes were from our garden and were topped with some fresh basil.  The beans and fresh pasta from the farmers market.  Easy and delicious summer meal.
