Every Tuesday should be Taco Tuesday and we LOVE our healthy tacos. Anything Mexican is normally a hit in our house. 

Ingredients: 

  • 1 pound fresh scallops 
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp kosher salt 
  • 1 cup frozen corn
  • 3 green onions
  • 2 jalapeƱos
  • 1/3 cup fresh cilantro (chopped)
  • 1 1/2 tsp fresh lime juice
  • 1 avocado
  • 8 small corn tortillas (warmed)
  • Lime wedges

Directions:

  1. Combine the scallops, olive oil, black pepper, and 1/2 teaspoon of the salt in a large bowl until scallops are evenly coated; chill until ready to use. 
  2. Grill the corn, green onions, and jalapeƱos over medium heat for 5 to 7 minutes. Stir in cilantro, lime juice, and 1/2 teaspoon of the salt. 
  3. In a separate bowl mash avocado and remaining salt until smooth. Grill scallops 2 minutes on each side. Remove from heat. Spread each warm corn tortilla with avocado mixture; top with 4 or 5 grilled scallops and a spoonful of corn pico.
