Scallop Aguachile (a type of Mexican ceviche)



Chillies, cucumber and coriander are ground together in a molcajete with lime to make this jewel green refreshing but SPICY liquor that is used to lightly marinate thinly sliced raw scallops. You could use a blender, but hand grinding in a lava rock molcajete releases the essential oils from the ingredients which perfume the ceviche beautifully. Only freshly squeezed lime and orange juice will do for this dish.


  1. Semi freeze scallops and slice horizontally into three pieces, reserve on a plate and refrigerate.
