Ceviche

The lime juice in ceviche chemically "cooks" the seafood magically changing its character in a matter of minutes. In this version, the scallops provide a nice contrast in texture and flavor to the Gulf fish. Truly fresh seafood is critical to the right taste.

  • ¾ pound (360 gr) red snapper, grouper, or other firm-fleshed white fish, sliced in bite-size pieces
