Ceviche is a term for raw seafood appetizers in a citrus marinade. Here, scallops are marinated with fresh squeezed lime juice, minced garlic, thinly sliced red onions, and jalapeno pepper. A mandoline will help with thin onion slices, and the amount of jalapeno you use can be lessened if you want a milder taste.

The scallops should marinate for at least 30-60 minutes before they are eaten. Once you take them out of the fridge, serve immediately. If you're concerned about the scallops staying cool, place the serving dish atop a bed of ice. Also, make sure to get the best quality scallops you can find, since they will be eaten raw. The fresher, the better.

  • 2 large limes
  • 1 small garlic clove
  • 1 small jalapeno
  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt (or to taste)
  • 2 Tbsp red onion
  • 4 to 6 large fresh scallops
  • plain crackers (optional)
