Meyer Lemon Scallop Ceviche
Will Budiaman

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.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 pound large sea scallops, sliced in half
  • Juice of 3 Meyer lemons
  • 1/2 cup chopped parsley
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 30 thin slices Meyer lemon

DIRECTIONS

If not dry-packed, give the scallops a rinse under cold running water and pat dry. Place in a large bowl in a single layer and coat in the juice of 1 Meyer lemon. Give the bowl a gentle shake. Marinate no longer than 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, prepare a chimichurri by combining the remaining Meyer lemon juice, parsley, red pepper flakes, garlic, and olive oil in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper, to taste, and mix thoroughly.

Arrange the scallops on Meyer lemon slices together with about 1 teaspoon of the chimichurri (with as little liquid as possible) on plates. Serve immediately.
