Deep Sea Diver Scallop Ceviche


Last week I went to see Cayucas with some friends, and before we headed out to the show, I made this tasty ceviche as a light pre-concert meal. It was inspired by their song "Deep Sea Diver", and it was summery, fresh, and reminiscent of the ocean, just like the band's music!

I got some super fresh scallops from the fish market since I wouldn't be cooking them.

Quartered and tossed in lime.

Cucumber and mint make this super fresh tasting.

I think im falling in LOOOO-Oo-Oo-OovEEEE.

It's like eating sunshine!

Check out the song Deep Sea Diver

Or their more popular hit High School Lover

And make the recipe tonight!
1 pound fresh scallops, cleaned, beard removed, and chopped into quarters
1/2 a cucumber, diced
2 teaspoons chopped mint
1 clove garlic, grated
1/2 a red onion, diced
4-6 limes, juiced
Mix all the above ingredients with about 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Allow to marinate in the fridge for about 45 minutes.

The slaw was:
1 cup grated carrot
2 cups shaved red cabbage
1/2 a red onion thinly sliced
1 tablespoon agave nectar
1 teaspoon sriracha
1 tablespoon fish sauce
juice of 1 lime
1 teaspoon chile flake
1/2 teaspoon salt
Mix all the ingredients and allow to sit for a half hour at least before serving


Lovely, so quick and fresh. Hope you enjoyed the show.

Eating sunshine was the only endorsement I needed to give these a go!
