Spicy Scallop Ceviche with Yuzu

Here is a passed canape from tonight that really showcased some fun flavors, "Scallop Ceviche with Yuzu and Chipotle". Ceviche by definition is raw fish marinated in citrus juice. I took a different approach when flavoring the sea scallop by using Yuzu juice. Yuzu is an Asian citrus fruit that is like a mix between an mandarin, lemon, and grapefruit. I garnished the ceviche with small bites of fresh pear and celery root The acidity of the yuzu with a spicy chipotle pepper infusion really made this a fun bite to excite the palate.
