8 cloves garlic, cut into 1/4-inch dice
8 metal skewers
Thread the scallops onto 4 skewers (3 to a skewer) and coat them with the braised garlic mixture. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Light a fire in a charcoal or gas grill. Grill until the scallops are just opaque in the center, occasionally brushing with more garlic, about 3 minutes per side. Serve immediately.
