Ceviche has been on my food bucket list for a long time.  Just the thought of “cooking” fish in lime juice totally intimidated me.  Would it really work?  Is it really that simple?  Would the fish really be cooked?  Would I over cook it?  So silly!  Making ceviche is simple.  I would say almost fool-proof.  You cut up some fish, add some flavorings and lots of lemon or lime juice and let it sit in the refrigerator.  That is it.  The juice does all the work.  In a few hours you can have Scallop Ceviche and have time to make baked plantain chips too.

When I was planning a Cinco de Mayo menu, I wanted something different for the appetizer.  I didn’t want Tex Mex or salsa.  The food we had in Mexico was light and fresh.  So why not make ceviche and get a “two for one”.  One item off my food bucket list and I get a recipe for my blog.  That is a win-win for me.  So now I needed to decide what fish I was going to use.  It is seriously hard to get good fish.  It makes me mad!  Yes, it makes me mad that finding good quality food is so hard.  I can always find tilapia but I am not a huge fan of it.  Scallops happen to be my favorite seafood and I lucked into finding some decent ones.  So it was settled, scallop ceviche was going on the menu.

This is light and refreshing.  I would absolutely love to serve this ceviche at a dinner party.  It made a lot more than I anticipated.  It the perfect way to start a meal.  The plantain chips are so addictive too.  I just bought more plantains today to make more baked chips.  I would eat them with anything or just on their own.  I doubt you have seen the last of them.  I recently served them instead of chips when I had my girlfriends over.  They were a big hit.

I have to say I am pretty excited about this recipe.  It feels good to try something I was scared of, even if it was a recipe.  I can think of so many possibilities now.  The biggest plus is how healthy this dish is.  Scallops have very little fat and calories.  All the flavorings are healthy – mango, jalapeno, cilantro.  What more could you want out of dish?  This sounds like the perfect appetizer to me.  Hey, you could even eat it as a main dish, Scallop Ceviche Lettuce Wraps!.

      Hi Carmen, I have become addicted to making plantain chips. Love how healthy they are. We had a one day stay while on a cruise in Puerto Rico. What a beautiful place and fantastic food! I love the idea of adding Shrimp next time. Thanks for being apart of Food Done Light.
  2. Oh, these look fantastic! I love the idea of a ceviche but haven't made one yet. Pinning this to my seafood board :) I followed you from the Cast Party Wednesday link party, by the way! I also run a Tasty Tuesdays link party on my blog & I'd love it if you could stop by & link up some of your recipes! Here's the link: http://anyonitanibbles.blogspot.co.uk/2013/05/Tasty-Tuesdays-Link-Party-9.html
  3. I suppose this is a stupid question ... so let me begin by apologizing up front ... it appears in a couple of the photos you sweared the scallop ceviche in lime halves that have been hallowed out. Is that correct?

      Hi Jacque, Yes I used some of the limes from the recipe. Thought it made a cute presentation.
