Avocado Scallop Ceviche

After the amazingness of my Bacon Pistachio Scallops last weekend, I went on a scallop frenzy.

It was all I wanted to eat for the next three days! One of the creations that I came up with while on my “Scallop Bender” was a delicious Avocado Scallop Ceviche Recipe.

Ceviche is one of my favorite things ever, yet somehow I’ve never posted a recipe for it on the blog!

It’s so light, fresh and flavorful, you really can’t go wrong!

Scallop Ceviche Recipe

My favorite “ceviche making memory” was from two summers ago on Martha’s Vineyard.

Some of my guy friends went out and caught a ton of striped bass and I made the most giant batch of ceviche ever with the fresh fish caught that morning. It was so delicious, I could have eaten it for days (and I did!)

The only time I stopped was to eat Lobster Rolls, because of the Martha’s Vineyard Lobster Roll Challenge, of course!
