2 green or red Serrano chiles, seeded and minced

Mix all of the ingredients in a glass bowl.  Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours and up to 16 hours.

Spoon the ceviche into small glasses and garnish with cilantro.

Seared Scallops

As an appetizer, 2-4 per person, as an entr�e, 4-6 per person

Dry scallops off on a paper towel to remove moisture.  On a plate, mix ground sumac, salt and pepper and dip each scallop on two sides into the spice blend. 

In a hot pan, melt 1-2 tbs butter.  Sear scallops for  1-2 minutes on each side.  Serve immediately.
