Shrimp and Scallop Ceviche

Easy Pan-Seared Scallops
Try pairing these spicy scallops with a grüner veltliner (goes well with both seafood and spice) and a simple salad of arugula with Parmigiano-Reggiano in a lemon and olive oil vinaigrette.  The method below does not cook the scallops all the way through, but if you're eating good quality scallops then that's what you want to do. However, if you'd like to cook them through, then keep the heat on for about 45 seconds longer than suggested below.  Click here for 7 Satisfying Low-Carb Recipes.

The Purcell Sisters combine sweet coconut with savory curry powder for a delicious sauce that perfectly complements seared scallops. A dusting of toasted sweetened coconut adds a slight crunch. A great island-style appetizer. — Allison BeckAdapted from Lauren Purcell and Anne Purcell Grissinger's "Cocktail Parties, Straight Up!"

While scallops are sometimes a pricey dinner to serve, they make great appetizers to pass around a party. Just stick a toothpick in them and they're edible. They're decadent but otherwise very healthy.

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.

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
