Classic Scallop Ceviche

This low-fat, dairy-free Mexican starter features scallops, which contain less cholesterol than any other shellfish. I like this full-flavored tangy lime version; others may prefer a half lemon-half lime marinade. Serve with whole-grain crackers or corn chips. TIP: You can also use halibut or another firm white fish, cut into similar small pieces.

  1. Place scallops in lime juice in a large glass bowl and refrigerate, covered, 6 hours or overnight. Stir occasionally.
  2. Remove scallops from marinade, discarding all but 2–3 tablespoons of lime juice. Add remaining ingredients. Salt lightly, stir, and serve immediately.
