Ceviche

"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."

  1. Rinse scallops and place in a medium sized bowl. Pour lime juice over the scallops. The scallops should be completely immersed in the lime juice. Chill the lime juice and scallops all day or overnight until scallops are opaque (you cannot see through them).
  2. Empty 1/2 of the lime juice from the bowl. Add tomatoes, green onions, celery, green bell pepper, parsley, black pepper, olive oil, and cilantro to the scallop mixture. Stir gently. Serve this dish in fancy glasses with a slice of lime hanging over the rim for effect.

I made this using halibut and perhaps the fish was too thick, but it took about 30 hours before the fish appeared "cooked." After tasting it, I decided it was a little bland and added more lime...

I made this for my husband who is from Guadalajara. He loved it! Definately get more limes and cut up the scallops some. On my husbands request I left out the green pepper and celery and used re...

I prefer a little heat in my ceviche, so I added one diced jalepeno pepper. It was delicious!

Wonderful, beautiful, classic. Get extra limes to make sure you get enough juice and use any leftovers for Margaritas. We cut each scallop in half to make sure they "cooked" thoroughly and let e...

Great recipe ! I substitute Shrimp for the Scallops and use a bit less parsley than what is called for.

Great.I used shrimp.I found a store that sells 100 count,peeled raw shrimp(just the right size). I used a little more cilantro & added a tablespoon of balsamic vinegar. trolleyjim
