How to make it
- Cut the fish into pieces about the size of the scallops.
- Toss the seafood with a little oil and season with salt and pepper.
- Sear the fish and scallops in a sauté pan over medium-high heat, about 30 seconds on each side. The middle should still be raw.
- Place seafood into a glass, plastic, or pottery dish and coat with lime juice. Marinate, refrigerated, 2 hours - overnight. The lime juice will firm up the fish and kind of cook it.
- Remove the flesh from half of a papaya and cut into medium dice.
- Slice the remaining half into long strips.
- Next day, pour off the lime juice and gently fold the drained fish and scallop mixture together with remaining ingredients and diced papaya.
- Serve with tortilla chips, sliced papaya, and Pink Pickled Onions.
- For the onion pickles:
- Bring the vinegar, sugar, and chilis to a boil in a small pan. Stir until sugar is dissolved.
- Remove from heat. In a plastic container, place the sliced onions and pour the liquid over them.
- Let them sit in the refrigerator for several days before serving.
- Serve chilled with meats and seafood. These are also great on sandwiches.
