  • 16 sea scallops, rinsed, drained, thawed, dried with paper towel, cut each scallop into about 4 pieces each

  • green onions for garnish

  2. Add scallops, sprinkle with pepper and cook until browned and temperature is 145°.
  3. Place a tortilla on a plate. Add a handful of broccoli slaw, add about 4 pieces of the scallops. Garnish with green onion and bacon. Add a little of the Ginger Scallion Sauce. Serve immediately.
