An acidic marinade is all that is needed to cook this spicy and sour scallop ceviche. You can also serve the scallops on toasted sesame crackers. As with all ceviches, the acidic marinade "cooks" the seafood without heat-and it happens pretty quickly. So it's good to make this at the last minute and set it out just before people dig in.

  • Heat oil in a pan over medium heat. Add garlic; cook and stir until golden brown and lightly crispy, 3 to 5 minutes.

  • Mix tomatoes, red onion, ginger, Thai chile, and calamansi with reserved vinegar. Top scallops with tomato mixture and sprinkle with green onions and fried garlic. Finish with a sprinkle of lemon zest and fleur de sel.
