12 U10 Diver Scallops
4 oz. 901 Silver Tequila
2 Fresh Limes
2 tbsp. Olive Oile
2 oz. Honey
2-3 sprigs fresh cilantro
1 clove garlic, minced
Pinch cumin
Pinch crushed red pepper
Fresh ground pepper and kosher salt to taste

Zest both limes in a bowl then fully juice. Add all remaining ingredients and mix with a wisk. Pour mix in a ziploc bag and add scallops and marinate for 30 minutes. Soak 4 10” wooden skewers in water while the scallops are marinating. Skewer three scallops per skewer. Grill over med-high heat for three minutes per side using marinade to baste scallops, turning 90 degrees ½ way through cooking time to produce grill marks.
