Wow! This is what I call ceviche party style! Not only does the lime juice marinate the scallops, the alcohol also adds another delicious flavor. Digby, Nova Scotia is famous for its scallops and bills itself as the scallop capital of the world. Scallops are Nova Scotia’s most valuable seafood catch and Digby is the home of the world’s largest inshore scallop fleet. These scallops are huge! I saw this recipe in the Occasions Magazine which is a food and drink periodical produced by the liquor control boards of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Newfoundland, Prince Edward Island and Alberta. The Nova Scotia issue highlights local restaurants and showcases their award winning recipes. I love the fleshy texture and sweet flavor of scallops. But these gems are not only delectable, they contain a variety of nutrients that can promote cardiovascular health, plus provide protection against colon cancer.

There's a wow factor when serving this in a martini glass. Cheers!
