How To Make Green Scallop Tacos
These delicious and healthy scallop tacos are made with tender scallops, and a delightfully spicy herb, avocado and cucumber salsa packed in a tortilla!
Toast the garlic and jalapeños in a dry skillet until golden. Remove from heat, peel the garlic, and seed the peppers.
Combine with olive oil, cilantro, and parsley in a small blender with just enough water to blend.
Place in a bowl and combine with diced cucumber and avocado.
Pat the scallops dry with paper towels. Season with salt and pepper.
Heat a medium skillet over high heat, add ½ teaspoon of oil.
Cook the scallops, 4 at a time, for about 1½ to 2 minutes on each side, or until it becomes caramelized and the center is cook. Do not overcook. Set aside and repeat with the others.
Heat the tortillas on a separate skillet for about 30 to 60 seconds on each side.
Top each with ¼ cup of the sauce and 2 scallops.
Squeeze some fresh lime juice on top, serve, and enjoy!
