  • 12 very fresh large scallops
  • 300g Mahi Mahi
  • ½ cup fresh lime juice (about 3 limes)
  • ½ cup of apple cider vinegar
  • ¼ cup oilive oil
  • 1 small jalapeno pepper, finely diced
  • ¼ tsp salt

and for the Tomato and Avocado Salad…

  • 1 tomato, seeded and finely diced
  • 1 avocado, pitted and finely diced
  • 1 green onion, finely chopped
