Scallop Seviche with Avocado Dressing

8 servings

“The inspiration for this dish came from a conch seviche served at a
small restaurant in Mérida, Mexico. Scallops make a good substitute
here as conch is not readily available in the States.”

Scallop Seviche
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
3 tablespoons fresh orange juice
3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
2 teaspoons grated lime zest
2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger
2 teaspoons minced serrano chile
1 1/4 pounds large sea scallops, sliced
horizontally 1/4 inch thick
4 scallions, finely chopped
1 red bell pepper, finely diced
1/4 cup finely chopped cilantro
3 tablespoons pure olive oil
1 large garlic clove, minced

Avocado Dressing
1 avocado, finely diced
1 small tomato, peeled, seeded and
finely diced
1 tablespoon minced red onion
1 tablespoon finely chopped cilantro
1 serrano chile, seeded and minced
1 small garlic clove, minced
1 1/2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1 1/2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
Salt and freshly ground pepper

1. In a large glass baking dish, combine the lemon, orange and lime juices with the lime zest, ginger and chile. Add the scallops in a single layer
and turn them to coat. Cover and refrigerate until the scallops turn
white, about 1 hour. Add the scallions, red bell pepper, cilantro, olive
oil and garlic and refrigerate for at least 1 hour or up to 3 hours for
firmer scallops.
2. In a medium bowl, combine the avocado with the tomato, red onion, cilantro, chile and garlic. Fold in the lime juice and olive oil and
season with salt and pepper.
3. Using a slotted spoon, divide the scallops, scallions and red bell pepper evenly among 6 shallow soup plates. Spoon the avocado dressing
next to or over the seviche and pour a little of the marinade
all around.

- Joyce Goldstein

Wine – Though beer is the obvious choice with seviche, the sweet
scallops and sharp citrus flavors will find echoes in a crisp lime-
scented Australian Riesling from the Clare Valley. Look for the
1998 Pikes or the 1998 Petaluma.
