Ingredients

• 14 scallops

• Half a packet of good quality fettuccine or linguine (or make your own pasta - this recipe is available in our recipes page)
• 2 ripe avocados (peeled / de-stoned & mashed)
• Lucky Taco Jalapeño Hot Sauce
• Coriander root (roughly chopped)
• Half a can of black beans (drained)
• Juice & zest of 1 lime
• Lucky Taco Chilli Salt

Method

• Place scallops into a bowl. Add a good glug of olive oil & season with salt & pepper.
• Boil your pasta in super salty water according to packet instructions. Usually 8 mins for al dente. If using fresh pasta - literally only 30 seconds in boiling water.
• Place mashed avo into a saucepan. Add juice & zest of lime, black beans & Lucky Taco Hot Sauce (add as much or as little as you like, depending on how much kick you like). Add some salt & cracked black pepper. Gently warm this sauce, taking care not to burn it. Stir frequently. 
• Place skillet over high heat. When searing, add scallops. Leave for 20 seconds. Then shimmy the skillet & give them a toss to cook other side. You really don’t want to cook a scallop from more than 30 seconds. Remove from heat.
• Drain your pasta.
• Divide between 2 plates.
• Layer over warmed avocado sauce.
• Divide the scallops between 2 plates on top.
• Sprinkle over coriander root & add a shake of Lucky Taco Chilli Salt.
• SO. MUCH. YUM.
