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!

Ingredients

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

Garnishes

Limes

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.

Provecho!
