About this recipe: This classic Latin American dish is so easy to make and is deeply impressive! Great for parties! The seafood is cooked by the acidity of the lime juice. Needless to say, fresh ingredients are a must in this recipe.

  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.
  2. Empty half of the lime juice from the bowl. Add tomatoes, green onions, celery, green capsicum, coriander, black pepper and olive oil to the scallop mixture. Stir gently. Serve in small glasses with a slice of lime hanging over the rim.


You may substitute a variety of seafood for scallops.
