Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Combine scallops, shrimp, tilapia, lemon juice, lime juice, orange juice, and serrano in a large bowl. Refrigerate for 1 hour, stirring every so often.

  • Combine avocado, tomato, cucumber, red onion, cilantro, and garlic in a medium bowl.

  • Whisk tomato and clam juice, vinegar, salt, lemon pepper, Worcestershire sauce, and white pepper together in a small bowl. Pour over avocado mixture and stir well.

  • Drain some of the citrus juices off the seafood mixture and fold in avocado-tomato juice mixture. Stir together and refrigerate for another 20 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

You can mix and match other types of seafood such as red snapper, halibut, sea bass, flounder, crab meat, or swordfish. Feel free to add more seafood then the recipe calls for if you wish to, I know I do sometimes.

If you like it spicier, add in an extra serrano to the mixture.

Also, if you love onion, feel free to add the entire onion instead of just half.

Editor's Note:

Consuming raw seafood may increase your risk of foodborne illness, especially if you have certain medical conditions.
