Scallop Taco (Fajitas) Recipe

Scallop Taco (Fajitas) Recipe


* Optional Substitution Note
  • 7oz giant bay scallops (raw)
  • ½ yellow bell pepper (raw)
  • ⅓ red onion (raw)
  • 1 tbsp fresh minced garlic
  • fresh cilantro
  • ¾ tbsp Kelapo coconut oil
  • 2 whole grain tortillas
  • Seasonings: ½ tbsp cumin, salt & pepper (to taste)
  • 4 tbsp fresh pico de gallo
  • ½ small avocado (optional)


Step 1

Set a cast iron skillet on medium heat. Add Kelapo coconut oil and allow the oil to heat up. Should take about 1–2 minutes.

Step 2

Chop yellow bell pepper and red onion into pieces and add to the skillet along with garlic. Sear the veggies and stir with a spatula.

Step 3

Pat dry the scallops with a paper towel to remove excess water. Add to the skillet.

Step 4

Season the scallops as they are cooking and be careful not to let them burn or stick to the skillet. Use a spatula to toss them around in the oil so they absorb the flavor or the veggies and the delicious Kelapo oil. Scallops cook very quickly so they should be cooked in a little under 5 minutes.

Step 5

Once the scallops are brown on both sides (top/bottom), remove the scallops from heat and serve immediately with warm tortillas.

Step 6

Assemble the tacos with scallops, grilled veggies, pico de gallo and if you want, fresh cilantro and avocado.

Remember to always adjust portion size to complement your diet and goals.  To reduce calories, you can use only 1 tortilla, less scallops and use spray Kelapo coconut oil instead.

About Kevin - author


Hey, I'm Kevin

My name is Kevin. My life changed when I realized that healthy living is a lifelong journey, mainly won by having a well-balanced diet and maintaining an active lifestyle.

By experimenting in the kitchen and sharing my meals on Tumblr, I learned healthy eating is not boring! By making a few adjustments to my favorite foods, I could design a diet that could help me achieve my wellness goals while satisfying my desire for BANGIN food! 😅 Now I try to help people around the world realize that same level of freedom in eating regardless of budget. Welcome, let's #DemocratizeWellness together!
