Recipe Clean Cut Ceviche with Mango Salsa and Red Onion

Clean Cut Ceviche with Mango Salsa and Red Onion

Serves 7-8

  • 3 lbs. fresh scallops or other seafood of choice
  • 1 dozen lemons
  • 1 dozen limes
  • ½ cup fresh chopped cilantro
  • ½ tbs. crushed red pepper
  • Sea salt & pepper to taste
  • 3 ripe mangos
  • 4 tbs. of olive, grape seed, or coconut oil
  • 1 red onion

Squeeze 11 lemons and 11 limes into a large ceramic bowl, it’s important not to use a metal container as the citrus will react with the metal, releasing possibly toxic substances and also change the flavor of the dish. Add scallops or seafood of choice to juice. Add cilantro, crushed red pepper and sea salt. Let stand covered in the refrigerator for 4 hours, or up to 24 hours.

Peel and chop mangos into a medium bowl, add oil, cilantro, sea salt, and pepper. Squeeze 1 lemon into mango salsa mixture and stir.

Thinly slice red onion and squeeze about 1/2 of 1 lime and 1 cup water for a minimum of 30 minutes in the refrigerator.

Finish by serving a scoop of scallops with a scoop of mango salsa, topped with marinated red onions. Optional: garnish with cilantro.
