Fishy Facts

Bay Scallops are sweeter, more tender and 1/3rd the size of sea scallops. They are only found in cold, shallow waters. Peruvian bay Scallops are sustainably farm-raised in Sechura Bay, Peru. Divers will harvest the scallops from the sea floor, causing no damage to the environment and with no by-catch of other unwanted species. These scallops are considered golden nuggets of the sea and the highest quality among all scallops.

1 cup lime juice

1/4 cup red onion, minced

1 bell pepper, chopped

4 scallions, chopped

3 TBSP aji amarillo (substitute chili powder)

2 TBSP cilantro, finely chopped

salt & pepper to taste
