Cilantro Lime Sauce on Scallop Tacos

 Cilantro Lime Sauce @createdbydiane.jpg
Fish tacos are always a favorite around here,
and I typically have LOTS of cilantro. I kinda love that stuff!
I made this Cilantro Lime Sauce and enjoy it on so many things, like pasta, vegetables and well…
any kind of tacos….Beef, Chicken, Fish, Shrimp, Scallop you name it this is a sauce that is perfect on them.
It’s really easy to whip up and lasts all week in the fridge so enjoy it all week long, if it lasts until then.
After purchasing cilantro yesterday that was in this…. simple gift I gave away
 I couldn’t get that sauce out of my head.
I just had to make it again….
Luckily, I had the ingredients on hand and could whip up a batch really quick for lunch.
I had scallops in the freezer and quickly thawed them in cold water.
Minutes later this is what I had for lunch…
I grilled the scallops in my grill pan, heated corn tortillas, added shredded red cabbage and topped it off with the Cilantro Lime Sauce, it was so delicious.
I was so glad I had enough scallops…I ate three tacos.
