In the Kitchen



1 pound fresh conch or scallops, or combination
1 cup fresh lime juice
1 cup diced avocado
1/2 cup minced red onion
1/2 cup finely chopped seeded tomato
1/4 cup cilantro
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 teaspoons minced jalapeƱo
]1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon cayenne
1/4 teaspoon cumin


Pat the seafood dry and place in a glass bowl. Cover with the lime juice and let marinate until opaque, about 3 hours, refrigerated. Place the seafood in a clean bowl, and reserve the lime juice.

Add the remaining ingredients to the seafood, gently stirring to mix. Add reserved limejuice to taste. Refrigerate for 1 hour, and serve chilled in a tall martini or cocktail glass.

The combination of citrus and spice served in a martini glass will transform your one-bedroom flat to a hammock on the sea.
