Marinated scallops.

"Ceviche" [pr. seh-VEE-chee] is a Peruvian specialty popular throughout Latin America, consisting of raw fish or shellfish marinated in lime juice. The acid in the lime juice tenderizes the raw fish while turning the flesh opaque, giving it the appearance and appeal of cooked fish. Onions, tomatoes and peppers are often added to the marinade.

12 mini-tomatoes (cherry, miniature or grape), halved 3/4 cup
1/4 cup lime juice, freshly squeezed 2 limes

Before you start

Only the freshest scallops should be used for this dish.

If eating raw shellfish makes you nervous, you may first simmer the scallops in boiling water until they are firm and not quite cooked through, about 2 min. Remove them using a slotted spoon, then run under cold water to chill. Toss with olive oil, cover and refrigerate until ready to marinate.


  1. Toss all the ingredients together, except the cilantro. Let sit 15 min at room temperature, or up to 2 hours in the refrigerator.
  2. Taste, adjust the seasoning, garnish with the cilantro and serve into transparent cups.
