One of my favorite commercials at the moment is from Skittles showcasing their new sour candy Fizzl’d Fruits. Seriously - who doesn’t laugh when Tube Sock Man starts running in place?? Though Skittles are clearly not paleo, this reminded me of how I wanted a tart and refreshing taste. There’s nothing better to provide that than fresh citrus in ceviche!
1 pound fresh scallops
½ cup fresh lime juice
½ cup fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup fresh orange juice
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
½ small red onion – finely diced
1 jalapeno finely (FINELY) chopped (optional)
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 avocado – peeled, pitted and diced
1/3 cup chopped cilantro – finely chopped
salt and pepper
In a large mixing bowl, combine all of your ingredients together (except the scallops and the avocado) and mix thoroughly. You’ll love the intoxicating smell – it’s so fresh and so clean! Set the bowl aside.
Take your scallops and quarter them. (You can cut them in any size you want really.) Once you have finished quartering all of your scallops, mix in a bowl with your citrus marinade. The marinade should cover all of the scallops so make sure there are enough juices in your bowl. Then cover and refrigerate for 3-4 hours while they marinate. Right before serving, add in the avocado and serve while the ceviche is still cold. After eating this – you’ll definitely want to say Hit Me Again Tube Sock!!
