Cucumber Ceviche with Scallops and Shrimp

Wall Street Journal Off Duty

Cucumber Ceviche

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.

Ingredients

  • 1 Pound cucumbers
  • 1/2 Cup fresh lime juice
  • 1/3 Cup fresh orange juice
  • Fine sea salt, to taste
  • 8 Ounces medium shrimp, shelled and deveined
  • 8 Ounces dry sea scallops, halved or quartered if large
  • 1 Cup cherry tomatoes, thinly sliced
  • 2 green or red serrano chiles, seeded and minced
  • 3/4 Cups chopped cilantro leaves, plus more for garnish
  • 1/4 Cup finely diced red onion

Directions

Cut half of the cucumbers into ¼-inch dice and set aside. Peel and seed remaining cucumbers and place in a blender along with lime juice, orange juice, and a pinch of salt. Blend for 1 minute, then pass mixture through a fine mesh sieve and discard the pulp.

Bring a saucepan of lightly salted water to a simmer and poach the shrimp and scallops in batches until barely cooked through, about 1 minute. Drain in a colander and spread on a baking sheet to cool.

In a large, nonreactive bowl, toss the cooled shrimp and scallops with the tomatoes, chiles, cilantro, and onion. Add reserved juice and toss again. Cover and chill for at least 2 hours.

Season ceviche to taste with salt and additional lime juice, if necessary. Spoon into small glasses, garnish with cilantro, and serve.
