Grilled Scallop Tortillas

I love scallops not just because they taste so good and sweet, but because they cook in a jiffy. These grilled scallop tortillas came about from using up some delicious leftover carrot and kohlrabi slaw style salad I'd made. Boy did these Ieftovers make a dish worth repeating!  In reality this recipe is a 3-fer - you get the scallops, the slaw and a fabulous fresh salsa verde that you can freeze to use elsewhere. So good.  And if you like to add a tostada crunch to your tortillas, but without frying them click here!

Grilled Scallop Tortillas
Yields6 Servings
Prep Time30 minsCook Time5 minsTotal Time35 mins
 12 scallops
 2 limes juiced, juice divided
 ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil, divided
  cup Plain Greek Yogurt
 1 scallion, minced
 1 medium white Kohlrabi bulb, peeled and julienned
 1 medium carrot, julienned
 1 cup cilantro leaves
 1 cup garlic chives, snipped
 6 corn tortillas
 2 cups baby arugula
1

In a ziplock bag combine 1 teaspoon olive oil with 1 tablespoon lime juice and the clove of garlic. Add the scallops, mix into the lime and seal. Set aside for 20-30 minutes

2

In a medium bowl mix together the Greek yogurt, the scallions, 1 tablespoon lime juice and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Add in the julienned kohlrabi and carrots and toss to mix. Set aside

3

Make the salsa verde: In the vase of a blender add the cilantro, garlic chives, a generous pinch of salt, and all the remaining oil. Blend at high speed adding the lime juice to thin it out to a thick cream. Scrape into a bowl and set aside. You can use a food processor but the result will be chunkier.

4

Wrap the corn tortillas in foil and warm in the oven or heat in a skillet over a medium flame until they lightly color, but don't crisp.
Meanwhile, drain the scallops. Heat a heavy grill pan over a medium-high flame. When very hot, lightly oil and add the scallops taking care not to crowd the pan. Cook 2-3 minutes or until browned and seared on one side. Flip and cook another 1-2 minutes depending on their size - the scallops should be a little translucent in the middle.

5

Assemble the tortillas: arrange the warm tortillas on a large plate in a single layer. Spoon some salsa verde over each one. Add arugula leaves, then some of the slaw. Top with 2 scallops per tortilla, drizzling a little more salsa verde on top of them. Eat immediately.
