    The natural sugar in strawberry/figs and smoky flavor of the bacon really makes this appetizer so good. The scallop also very appetizing!  -  07 Aug 2012  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)

    I could not get figs so I substituted a raw King Prawn, bacon wrapped, instead. The recipe turned out well and the skewers disappeared.  -  21 Jul 2013  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
