"This recipe is a staple in Mexico. Raw seafood is cooked by the lime juice! Now don't wrinkle your nose! You would never know the seafood was not cooked prior to serving. Make sure to always use the freshest ingredients! You may substitute many types of seafood for scallops, for example: halibut, red snapper, flounder, or swordfish. Also, shrimp and octopus are good additions."

Recipe Ingredients for Ceviche

16 oz bay scallops, shrimp, octopus, and/or white fish
1/2 cup lime juice (fresh)
2 tomatoes, diced
5 green onions, minced
2 stalks celery, sliced
1/2 green bell pepper, minced
1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley
1 tablespoon garlic
1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
1/8 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1/4 cup avocado (optional)
1 freshly ground black pepper to taste

Recipe Directions for Ceviche

  1. 1. Rinse raw seafood and place in a medium sized bowl. Pour lime juice over the seafood. The seafood should be completely immersed in the lime juice. Chill the lime juice and seafood all day or overnight until scallops/fish/shrimp are opaque (you cannot see through them).

  2. 2. Empty 1/2 of the lime juice from the bowl. Add tomatoes, green onions, celery, green bell pepper, parsley, black pepper, olive oil, garlic, avocado and cilantro to the seafood mixture. Stir gently. Serve this dish in fancy glasses with a slice of lime hanging over the rim for effect.
