    Rinshinomori's Note:

    This is surprisingly fast to make and since scallops are sliced 1/2 to 1/3 horizontally (depending on size), they grill up very quickly on the pan. If scallops are large, then 1 taco equals 1 large scallop. But, if you are using medium or smaller scallops, you may need to use more scallops per taco. I love the creaminess of this avocado sauce which goes really well with other grilled fish or seafood items too.

    Units: US | Metric

    For Sauce

    For Marinade

    For Tacos

    Directions:

    1. 1
      In a blender combine the sauce ingredients and process until smooth. Transfer to a small serving bowl.
    2. 2
      In a bowl whisk the marinade ingredients. Slice each scallops into 1/2 or 1/3 depending on size horizontally. Add the scallops to the marinade and turn to coat evenly. Cover and marinate at room temperature for about 15 minutes.
    3. 3
      In a medium bowl combine the cabbage, onion, and cilantro.
    4. 4
      Heat a nonstick frying pan and lightly coat with olive oil. Place the scallops without crowding and quickly sear the scallops on high heat until lightly browned, about 30 seconds to a minute. Turn over and brown on second side for 30 seconds to a minute. Do not overcook or they will toughen. Remove from pan.
    5. 5
      Wipe the same frying pan and heat the tortillas both sides until warm about 15 seconds each side. Remove and continue with all the tortillas.
    6. 6
      Fill each tortilla with some of the cabbage mixture and scallops. Top with the sauce and eat!

      seems lame. where is the grill ? why marinate scallops at all<br/>when they are delicious on their own with maybe a quick dressing while they are cooking.
