4 rashers lean back bacon, fat removed (8 Sins on Green) | 8 x 57 g/2 oz scallops natural (28 Sins on Green) | 1 tablespoon finely chopped parsley | For the mustard dip: | 100 g / 3 1/2 oz very low fat fromage frais | 2 level teaspoons whole-grain Dijon mustard (1 Sin)
Scallops are always a wonderful treat, especially if you are fortunate enough to have a good local supply or are able to lay your hands on really fresh ones. The secret of cooking scallops is not to overcook them or they will lose their succulent juiciness and become tough and stringy.
1 red pepper | 1 yellow pepper | 4 slim courgettes, sliced | 1 red onion, cut into chunks | 1 fennel bulb, sliced (optional) | 2 garlic cloves, crushed | 1 sprig fresh rosemary | 2 sprigs fresh thyme | salt and ground black pepper | 2 teaspoons olive oil (4 Sins)
These succulent grilled vegetable skewers can be served hot or cold - either way they are equally delicious. They taste especially good with the Italian basil and tomato dip. For a special party when you want to impress your guests, you could thread the vegetables on to thick fresh rosemary stems, just remove most of the green leaves so that only a small sprig is left at the end and then push the woody pointed end through the vegetables.
24 skinned chicken wings on the bone (36 Sins on Green) | OR 24 skinned chicken thighs | OR drumsticks on the bone (60 Sins on Green) | lemon wedges and salad leaves, to garnish | For the honey and ginger coating: | 4 level tablespoons runny honey (6 Sins) | 3 tablespoons soy sauce | juice and grated lemon zest of 1 lemon | 1 x 2.5 cm/1 in piece fresh root ginger, peeled and chopped
You can use chicken drumsticks, thighs of wings to make this selection of mouthwatering grilled party snacks. Wings are lower in Sins on the Green Eating Plan - only 1 1/2 Sins per wing compared with 2 1/2 Sins for a drumstick or thigh.
