Must-Try Citrus Scallop Ceviche

July 6, 2013

Ceviche (or escabeche) is a typical Spanish and Latin American dish made with raw fish that "cooks" in citrus juice. Along with a chilled gazpacho, it's a frequent star attraction on our summer dinner menus, both an appetizer and main dish. It's healthy, refreshing and easy to make. Tender scallops "cook" quickly and their natural sweetness is enhanced by the citrus juices, especially orange juice. We love to scoop it up with freshly toasted tortilla chips!
