Bay Scallops Ceviche

The following recipe and photography was provided by recipe developer and food photographer, Ashley Durand of Plate & Pen.

It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of wine. I love to cook with it and drink it. I had the chance to sample a white wine from Argentina at Heinen’s, and it was delicious.

Bay Scallops Ceviche

In case you’re unfamiliar, Argentina is the fifth-largest wine-producing country in the world. In fact, Mendoza, the epicenter of Argentine vino and the most highly-elevated grape growing region in the world, makes over 70% of the country’s wine.

The wine that I tried is called Santa Julia Torrontes. From the moment I tasted it, I knew that it would be ideal as a marinade for Heinen’s fresh bay scallops. Paired with ceviche, this dish has a little spice, a little acidity and a lot of flavor!
