Meyer Lemon Scallop Ceviche
Hotategai. That's what scallop sashimi is in Japanese. I've always thought that raw scallop was ever so slightly sweet. Delicious, but perhaps in need of a bit of balance. So I created this dish in the hope of bringing that balance to lovely sweet scallop. Meyer lemons provide acidity with just enough sweetness to keep the scallops from taking on too much zing. This is a great appetizer to serve when you have quality scallops. See all ceviche recipes. Click here to see 5 Sublime Scallop Recipes.

This shellfish ceviche amps up the flavor by substituting cucumber juice for some of the citrus. For best results, use a small, think-skinned cucumber variety, such as Korean or Delikatesse. Read more about cucumbers on Wall Street Journal's "Off Duty" section.

Pan-Seared Scallops
After attempting to be crazy fancy — and setting off the fire alarm in my smoke-filled apartment — I decided that simplicity is the way to go when dealing with these tasty bivalves. All you need for this recipe is high-quality butter, scallops, and a pan. The butter will add richness and flavor, while still allowing the scallops to shine on their own. If you want to jazz it up, wrap them in bacon. Click here to see 5 Sublime Scallop Recipes. Click here for the 10 Seafood Recipes You Can Make in Less Than 15 Minutes

Believe it or not, this was the first time I've ever seared scallops. Yes, it's true. I have a few tips that I picked up on while perfecting these guys that you should know if you're a first-timer, too. One, butter is key. Two, always make sure your scallops are very dry before you sear them. Three, don't overcrowd the pan, because the juices from the scallops will prevent you from properly searing them. The pea purée is a great complement, but keep in mind that you can substitute other vegetables into that as well, such as carrots, butternut squash, or corn.
