    Hokkaido Sea Scallop and Mango Ceviche

    Hokkaido scallops have a meaty texture and sweet flavour that make them particularly suitable for this raw preparation in which the lime juice does the “cooking.” Classic Mexican flavours of red onion, cilantro, and just a dash of heat from serrano pepper make this a fresh and scrumptious way to get a party started.

    Sustainability status

    Hokkaido sea scallops, so called because of their origins in the Hokkaido region of Japan, are farm-raised and have earned both Ocean Wise and Marine Stewardship Council certification.

    Ceviche savvy

    Choose commercially frozen scallops that are frozen quickly at a very low temperature. Thaw them overnight before using by removing them from the original packaging and placing them in one layer in a glass container with a cover. Drain off any liquid as it thaws.

    When you add lime juice to your ceviche, the acid in the lime juice works to change the protein structure of the scallops, resulting in a firmer texture. You can see it working as the colour of the scallop changes from very pale pink to milky white.

    Note: Consuming raw shellfish may increase your risk of foodborne illness, especially if you have certain medical conditions. It’s recommended that pregnant and immunocompromised people avoid raw seafood.
