The word "scallop" is synonymous with "shell" in Old French because that's where they come from: seashells. There are many species of scallop around the world, so there's a lot for us to try! When prepared correctly, they're tender and add a lovely taste and flavor to a wide variety of dishes: especially tacos! I'm used to making a chipotle cream sauce and grilling up my scallops on the BBQ. They're very easy to make and taste insanely good! Scallop tacos are also popular and very much in demand around my house during the summer months. My fiancé would probably eat them 3 times a week if he had his way. Prepare these tacos for your family this summer and you'll see how much they'll enjoy them! MORE + LESS -

  • 4
