Who Needs Winter When We've Got... CEVICHE!

Well, it's been a long time friends.  I admittedly disappeared off the face of the blogger earth but I have returned.  I know you were worried, but fear not!  I have some great new recipes for 2015 and some fun ideas to connect people and food together.  But I'll save all that for a later time.  Now to the important stuff.  CEVICHE. 

It may be winter, but a nice dish of ceviche is fresh and crisp dish to brighten your dreary day.  And, it's healthy with all kinds of good protein and vegetables.  What's that?  You're on a juice cleanse?  Oh, well throw this baby in the blender and add some kale then (maybe not, your choice really).  So it might not be juice but it's still tasty and healthy.  Cheers to a New Year!

1 pound of scallops
8 limes
1/2 yellow pepper
2 tomatoes
4 green onions
2 stalks of celery
1.5 tbl of olive oil
1 tsp of ground pepper
1 jalapeno
1/4 cup of cilantro
1 avocado

1.  Cut scallops in quarters and place in a bowl.  Squeeze in juice from all 8 limes until scallops are submerged in the juice.  Let sit in refrigerator overnight until they are "cooked" and no longer opaque. 

2.  Dice tomatoes, yellow pepper, green onions, celery and cilantro. 

3.  Drain half the lime juice from the scallops and add the vegetables.  Stir and then add diced jalapeno, pepper and oil.  Set back in the refrigerator to chill and allow flavors to blend for 6 - 8 hours.

4.  Serve in a small dish with sliced avocados.  Enjoy!
