How To Prepare Scallop Tostadas

🥑 First, spray avocado oil on the wonton wrappers and bake at 350F for 8-10 minutes.

🍋 Secondly, blend together the avocado, mayo, 1 Serrano, 1/2 lemon, salt, pepper, pepperoncini & juice. If it is too thick add a bit of water.

🧅 Add the onion to a pan and add enough oil to coat. Then, bring to a simmer (about 1-2 minutes on high) and lower heat immediately to low and fry until golden. About 10 minutes, make sure they don’t burn.

🌶 Then, mix together the juice of 1 orange, 1/2 lemon, miso, ginger, Tamari, sesame oil and rice vinegar. Add in scallops, remaining Serrano and scallions.

🥒 Lastly, add cucumber to the wonton, pipe avocado mayo, top with scallop mixture, black sesame seeds and the crispy onion.

Chef Nadia’s Tip

Cut an ‘x’ on the wonton wrapper so they don’t puff up.
