Scallop Tacos

I love scallops, I have prepared them in other blog posts and they are always a crowd please in my house. Specially with my kids as the sweetness of the scallops makes them a super great option. Enjoy!



1 lb scallops

Red chile powder

1 tsp butter

Salt to taste

Corn Salsa

1 cup of sweet corn

2 jalapeños deseeded and finely chopped

1 tbsp pork fat

1 garlic clove finely chopped

Chile powder, salt and pepper to taste

1 avocado roughly smashed



Queso cotija

Micro greens

Yoli white corn tortillas


How to prepare

Saute sweet corn, jalapeños and garlic with pork fat. Season with chile powder and salt/pepper. Remove from the pan once the kernels are getting a little char / caramel color. Clean up the the pan and add 1 tsp of butter. If you have large scallops, cut them in 3-4 pieces to make them easier to eat in a taco. Sprinkle chile powder and lightly salt the scallops. Sauté for about 2 minutes total and remove from heat. Heat up Yoli white corn tortillas.

To serve, set the tortillas and add 1 tsp of smashed avocado. Then place about 2 tbsp of scallops, top with corn sauce and some crumbled cotija. Serve with limes.
