Tropical Ceviche

Tropical Ceviche


  • 8 oz. shrimp
  • 8 oz. bay scallops
  • 1/2 red onion, diced
  • 2 jalapenos, seeded and diced
  • 2 Roma tomatoes, chopped
  • 1/3 cup cilantro, roughly chopped
  • 1/4 cup sweet mango, chopped
  • 1/4 cup pineapple, chopped
  • 1/2 cup lime juice
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 cup avocado, chopped


  1. If you want to speed up the marination process, you can blanch the shrimp and scallops for a couple of minutes until barely cooked. Drain and chop shrimp and scallops. If you prefer working with raw seafood, chop shrimp and scallops without blanching.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine shrimp, scallops, red onion, jalapeno, tomatoes, cilantro, mango, pineapple, lime juice, salt and pepper. Mix well.
  3. Refrigerate the ceviche mixture for at least 4 hours to let the flavors incorporate. For better flavor, let it sit overnight.
  4. Just before serving, add the chopped avocado. Serve with tortilla chips.
