Dinner tonight! Scallop ceviche - latimes.com Featured

Authors: Los Angeles Times FOOD

Tonight's dinner recipe is a Culinary SOS request from Amanda in Encino:

"We spent the weekend in Los Cabos and had an incredible scallop ceviche dish at the Tequila & Ceviche Bar at Las Ventanas. It was so fresh, I think it came straight from the Gulf of California. The chef said they marinate the scallops in lime juice to "cook" them. It looked beautiful, tasted even better and seemed pretty simple to make. Could it be that easy? Would they be willing to share the recipe? It would be a great way to impress my friends this summer."

Simple, bright and full of fresh flavors, this ceviche from Las Ventanas al Paraiso comes together in about an hour.
