City Ceviche

A wonderful appetizer to enjoy with friends when San Francisco's Indian summer warms the city.

I often buy precooked shrimp (but NOT frozen!) and just poach the scallops. Best when served with cold beer (we prefer Pacifico®) and fresh limes. Using quality and sturdy tortilla chips is essential. Please note that the serving size is meant for appetizer portions.

And the best part - I usually end up with leftover stuffing, which freezes beautifully until the next carry-in!"
