Sunday Brunch: Shrimp and Scallop Ceviche Recipe

Sydney Oland

Shellfish may not be the first thing to pop into most peoples minds' in the morning. But this simple ceviche has a little bit of spice and lots of bright flavors to shake off whatever you may have been doing the evening before. If the scallops you buy are on the large size, cut them into smaller pieces to ensure that they "cook" in the same amount of time as the shrimp. Serve with tall glasses of light beer.
