Two Great Scallop Recipes

Scallop Marinade Recipes


Scallop Ceviche

1/2 lb scallops, quartered

1/2 cup grape tomatoes, roughly chopped

1 green or red Serrano chiles, seeded and minced

1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro

1/2 cup finely diced red onion

1/2 cup fresh orange juice

1 tbs fresh lemon juice

1 tbs fresh lime juice

salt, to taste

2 tbs finely shredded unsweetened coconut flakes

Mix all of the ingredients in a glass bowl.  Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours and up to 16 hours.

Spoon the ceviche into small glasses and garnish with cilantro.


Seared Scallops

As an appetizer, 2-4 per person, as an entrée, 4-6 per person

Dry scallops off on a paper towel to remove moisture.  On a plate, mix ground sumac, salt and pepper and dip each scallop on two sides into the spice blend. 

In a hot pan, melt 1-2 tbs butter.  Sear scallops for  1-2 minutes on each side.  Serve immediately.


As a variation, try Duq'qah seasoning with seared scallops. The scallop ceviche is so flavourful & very easy to make. Check out KarenFood, the blog, for more exciting, tantalizing recipes, tips & motivations.
