Directions
1. 
Remove the tough connective strap from the side of each scallop.
2. 
Trim 24 water chestnut slices to the height of the scallops. Press a water chestnut slice together with a scallop; bind together by wrapping a piece of bacon around them and securing with a toothpick. Repeat with remaining scallops, chestnuts, and bacon.
3. 
Combine soy sauce, sugar substitute, and ginger. Pour over the wrapped scallops; marinate 10 minutes.

Place wrapped scallops on a broiler pan 4 inches from heat source. Broil until bacon is crisp and scallops are cooked but still moist, 5 to 6 minutes. Turn once during cooking time.
