Sea Scallops Ceviche

Martha Price


This is a very simple, yet delicious, civiche. Wonderful as an elegant first course, it is flavorful and succulent, however its' simplicity makes sure it does not detract from the more complex flavors of the meal to come.

If you like sea scallops and would like to serve a starter course that is no-fail and sure to please, try this!

From my trusty old thrift store find 1961 edition of The New York Times Cookbook.
