The scallop aguachille verde is a typical dish of the Pacific coast of Mexico. This delicious dish is very popular in places like Sinaloa, Nayarit, Sonora and Baja California. Some call it a "delicacy of raw seafood lovers". Many also say it’s a great way to get rid of a hangover after a big celebration. The main ingredients are scallops, fresh or dried chilies, lemon and water. There are also versions in which fresh vegetables are added. I hope you enjoy this delicious Mexican dish. MORE + LESS -
