  • 2 grapefruits, peel and pith removed

  • 1 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 2 jalapeno peppers, minced
  • 1/2 small red onion, finely chopped

    between sections and membranes of grapefruits to separate segments; place segments in bowl. Squeeze juice from membranes into bowl. Strain; reserve juice in a bowl at room temperature. Place segments in another bowl; cover with plastic, and refrigerate.

  2. Slice each scallop into three rounds; place in a large nonreactive
    bowl. Add reserved grapefruit juice, lime juice, and salt; toss well. Cover; refrigerate 30 minutes. Drain, discarding liquid. Refrigerate scallops until ready to use.
