How to Make Seafood Tacos with Bay Scallops
Seafood Taco Recipe
Want to make a healthier taco? Using Bay Scallops as an alternative to beef or chicken will decrease the fat while increasing important nutrients like Iron and Omega-3. Did we mention they taste too good to be true!
I learned how to make seafood tacos by accident. I met a vegetarian who refused to eat my spicy chicken tacos. Nothing inspires a cook like a refusal. After a few experimental sessions in the kitchen, I settled upon using bay scallops.
- 1 lb Small Bay Scallops, Approx 8 per taco
- 2 oz Franks Hot Sauce
- 1 bunch Scallions, Chopped
- 1 pkg Corn Tortillas
- 1 can Refried Beans
- 1/2 lbs Muenster Cheese, Finely Grated
- 2 Fresh Tomatoes, Diced
In a small frying pan, combine chopped onions, bay scallops, hot sauce and 1 cup of water. Bring to a boil and reduce heat. Allow mixture to thicken. Remove from heat.
Heat the Refried beans. Remove from heat.
Heat Corn shells in hot oil. Let dry on paper towels.
Shred Muenster cheese
Dice the tomatoes
