Scallop and Capsicum Tacos

Traditional taco fillings are put aside in favour of fresh herbs, capsicums (bell peppers), and scallops. If you prefer prawns you can swap them for the scallops and have a really nice seafood taco.

Notes

Warming tortillas prevents them from cracking and breaking. Here are three ways to warm your tortillas:
  • In the oven: Wrap stacks of 8 tortillas in foil; place in a 190°C. (375°F ; Gas Mark 5) oven for 10 to 15 minutes.
  • On the stove: Turn a gas or electric burner on high. Using tongs, slide one tortilla at a time over the burner for a few seconds, alternating sides, until it's softened and beginning to char. Cover tortillas to keep warm.
  • In the microwave: Wrap a stack of 8 tortillas in a barely damp, clean kitchen towel (or paper towel); microwave on High for 30 to 45 seconds.
