Recipe by Alexa Weibel

  • 4Servings


  • 2 avocados, chopped
  • 3/4 tsp. lime zest and 4 tsp. juice
  • 1 red jalapeño, very thinly sliced
  • 1 tsp. rice vinegar
  • 1/8 tsp. sugar
  • 2 tbsp. canola oil
  • 12 large scallops (12 oz.)
  • 4 radishes, cut into matchsticks
  • Cilantro leaves, for garnish


In medium bowl, mash avocado, lime zest and juice; season. In small bowl, mix jalapeño, vinegar and sugar. In skillet, heat oil over medium-high. Cook seasoned scallops until browned, about 2 minutes; turn and cook until opaque in centers, about 1 minute. Divide avocado mixture among plates; top with scallops, radishes, jalapeño and cilantro.

Bonus: How do you store avocados? Put whole ripe avocados in the fridge and they’ll stay fresh for up to a week.
