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.
You may substitute a variety of seafood for scallops.
This was really good. I used frozen scallops because I couldn't find fresh and was nervous about the quality, but I read that the process used for commercially freezing scallops kills some potentially harmful bacteria. - 26 Apr 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I gave this to local fish market, they've doubled sales of scallops, orange roughy, halibut, etc. Gave to local restaurant, it's their "cold soup" of the day... I'm gin' it to acquaintances, now, they're "Pals"... nuff said? - 04 Mar 2001 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Oh My!!! Almost identical to the ceviche I used to order at one of my favorite restaurants! You can also substitute peeled & deveined shrimp in place of the scallops or use a combination! I'm hooked on this quick & easy recipe - really impresses, as well! Thank you, Star! - 28 Feb 2001 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
