Made for Spring PAC 2010, I followed the lead of prior reviews + my history w/Tex-Mex type ceviche & cut marination time to 3 hrs. Ingredient issues + pers pref were also factors. Sea bass is not available here & scallops are not easy to find + *very* expensive if found, so I used 15 oz halibut w/9 oz shrimp for the same seafood amt & only 1 jalapeno (w/o seeds) for the sake of my DH. The pineapple flavor is excellent in this tropical ceviche & I loved all the texture! I think mango would also work & even avocado as a late add for those who favor it. All in all, it was a real treat to revisit my affection for ceviche in my Dallas dys. Thx for sharing this recipe w/us & for accepting the chgs I had to make. :-)
