This recipe originally came from Fairbanks’ Margaret Clark in “Good Food A-Plenty,” but I’ve fiddled with it a lot. :) Delicious! (Time does not include marination.)

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Place scallops in a shallow airtight container such as Tupperware and add lime juice to cover. Cover tightly and refrigerate for eight hours. Place marinated scallops in a colander and drain thoroughly, but do not rinse.
  2. In a separate bowl whisk together the orange juice, vinegar, olive oil, Tabasco, garlic, basil, parsley, and sugar, then add the salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Add remaining ingredients (except for orange rind garnish), toss, adjust seasoning.
  4. Add the drained scallops, toss well, and refrigerate until time of serving.
  5. To serve, toss ceviche again to coat, then place in lettuce-lined shallow bowl and sprinkle with grated orange rind.
  6. Note: other mild white fish can be substituted for scallops, such as flounder.
  7. Makes 8-10 side servings.
