Cumin-Seared Scallop Tacos with Crispy Bacon & Orange-Habanero Salsa

Cumin-Seared_Scallop_Tacos-Final

As many of you know, my favorite holiday is almost here! Cinco de Mayo! It gives me the opportunity to overindulge in my favorite cuisine, Mexican. But who am I kidding, I don't need Cinco de Mayo to do that…it's just more acceptable to eat tacos every meal of the day and I don't feel as crazy obsessed. Oh how I love living in denial…

These tacos sound all crazy fancy-pants, but in reality they're not. If you have a blender or food processor it's actually quite easy. You just season the scallops, fry up the bacon (God, I love bacon), and you throw some oranges, a bit of red onion, cilantro, olive oil and a half of a habanero pepper into a blender. That's basically it. And then you're left with this amazing salsa that you just want to pour over everything. So simple yet so unique. Love when that happens. Oh, and you can't forget the radicchio, but that's just easy-peasy.Buy domperidone online

My one problem is that my grocery store only sells containers of 5 or 6 habaneros, so now I have to figure out some more recipes I can use habaneros in. I guess I'll be eating spicy for a while!

Ingredients: Serves 2 people
1 lb. uncooked scallops
Seasoning for scallops: Salt & cumin
2 cups radicchio, roughly chopped
4 slices of bacon

Orange-Habanero Salsa:
2 oranges, peeled
1/4 red onion, roughly chopped
1/2 habanero chile, seeds removed
2 tbsp fresh cilantro
2 tbsp olive oil

Directions:

  • Throw salsa ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth – taste and add more habanero if you want it spicier or cilantro if you're a big cilantro fan
  • Season scallops and set aside
  • Start frying bacon in a skillet until crispy
  • Meanwhile, chop up your radicchio
  • Remove bacon and set aside on a paper towel
  • Discard a bit of the bacon grease from skillet, but leave enough to cook your scallops in
  • Saute scallops until lightly browned on each side – 3-4 minutes total
  • On a lazy day I usually just microwave my corn tortillas to soften them up, but you can heat them up in a skillet too
  • Build tacos, garnish with a little extra cilantro if you'd like and devour
