San francisco sassy scallops

Yield: 4 Servings

Measure Ingredient
1 pounds Bay scallops
½ cup Fresh lemon juice or enough to cover scallops
4 Red bell peppers; parched, peeled; seeded
2 tablespoons Raspberry vinegar
2 tablespoons Extra-virgin olive oil
½ teaspoon Pequin quebrado (to taste)
Salt to taste; if desired
1 medium Hess avacado

Place scallops in a glass or porcelain bowl & cover with lemon juice. Stir.

Cover and refrigerate, stirring frequently, about 2 hours or until scallops 'cook' in lemon juice and turn opaque. Meanwhile, prepare sauce: in a blender or food processor, process bell peppers, vinegar, oil, pequin and salt until pureed. Taste & adjust seasonings. To serve, pit and peel avacado, then cut lengthwise in slivers. Divide bell pepper sauce equally among 4 to 6 clear glass plates. Drain scallops, center scallops on sauce and garnish edge of each plate with avacado slivers. Makes 4 to 6 appetizer servings.
