Prawn and Scallop Soft Tacos with Avocado Salsa

These can be made using soft tacos or the larger tortillas  – they are delicious – try stopping at just one – it’s impossible…  Grilled prawns and scallops with a luscious Avocado Salsa drizzled with fresh lime juice… Yum!  The amount of prawns and scallops listed below will make two tacos.  We find cooking one each at a time is best – that way everything is hot and ready to eat immediately…

Ingredients for 2 people:

2 ripe avocados

handful of cherry tomatoes chopped

finely chopped red onion

1/2 dozen finely chopped Jalapeno Chillies (we buy them in a jar)

salt & pepper to taste

juice of 1 lime

packet of soft tacos or tortillas (I use Mission brand)

6 fresh scallops

6 fresh prawn cutlets

Lime wedges to serve

Sour cream

Method:

Avocado salsa:

Mash the avocados with the juice of one lime

Stir though the finely chopped onion, Jalapeños and tomatoes

Season with salt & pepper to taste and set aside

In a grill pan or very hot fry pan, saute the prawns and scallops for a few minutes until cooked

At the same time in another hot frying pan, heat the tacos quickly on each side or if preferred heat in microwave

Smear a generous amount of Avocado Salsa over each taco

Place 3 prawns and 3 scallops on each taco

Fold which ever way suits you

Serve on a plate with lime wedges and a dollop of sour cream

Squeeze the lime juice over the taco and dip in the sour cream

Bon Appetit!
