2. Assemble, cherry tomato,scallop, lemon slice, pineapple, scallop, lemon, pineapple, etc until 6 scallops are on the skewer. End with cherry tomato.
3. The Kabobs will have 2 cherry tomatoes; five slices of lemons, half wrapped around the five pineapple wedge and 6 six scallops.
4. Maple Glaze: mix maple, butter and chili pepper flakes 30 minutes prior to using. Lightly baste your Kabobs with the maple glaze while your BBQ warms up to medium heat.
5. Next step is to cook the Kabobs for 6 - 8 minutes depending on the size of your scallops. Ensure your guests are ready to eat prior to starting to cook so the scallops can be served immediately. Continue to baste the Kabobs while they cook until they are nicely glazed. Garnish with the sea salt when you serve.
