For Christofle, Diana teaches us how to prepare a delicious scallop ceviche for a perfect picnic on the beach.

To create this delicious scallop ceviche (for 6), you will need :


- 1 cup cubed mangoes

- 1 fresh jalapeno or serrano chile, seeded and minced

- ¾ cup chopped fresh cilantro leaves

- 1 cup finely diced red onion

- ⅓ cup fresh lime juice

- ⅓ cup fresh lemon juice

- 1 tea spoon of salt, plus more to taste

- 1 pound jumbo or bay scallops

- Scallops shells, for serving (optional)

Step-by-Step Guide


#1 Combine the first 8 ingredients in a nonreactive bowl and stir to mix.


#2 Slice scallops in half lengthwise (leave whole if using bay scallops) and add to bowl, tossing gently to coat. 


#3 Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, and up to overnight. 


#4 Season with salt to taste, spoon the ceviche into shells and serve !
