--Serves 6-8 as taco fillings or as a tapas

- 1 pound red-skin boiling potatoes (about 4 medium), cut into ½-inch pieces
- 1 pound scallops
- 2 tablespoons vegetable or olive oil
- Freshly ground black pepper
- 12 ounces fresh Mexican chorizo sausage (about 1½ cups), casing removed

bring to boil.Add potatoes and simmer over medium heat until tender,
about 12 minutes. Drain.For the scallops
Pat scallops dry with
paper towels. Heat a 12-inch skillet or griddle over medium-high heat.

nonstick or well-seasoned cast iron.

golden, about 2 minutes total. With high heat, the scallops will sear

To finish and serve:
Place chorizo and green onions in skillet. Cook over medium heat,
breaking up any clumps of chorizo, just until sausage has rendered its
fat, 6-7 minutes.
Add drained potatoes and continue cooking, occasionally scraping up any
sticky bits, until potatoes begin to look crusty-brown, about 15
Meanwhile, cut the scallops into pieces that resemble the diced potatoes.
When the potatoes are browned, add scallops. Mix everything together as the scallops heat for a minute or so.
Scoop the mixture into a serving bowl and set before guests. For tacos, serve with corn tortillas.
