2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Make the quick-pickled onion

  • Peel and thinly slice enough onion to measure 1 cup [2 cups]. Finely chop enough of the remaining onion to measure ¼ cup [½ cup]; set aside for the salsa.
In a small sauce pot, bring the apple cider vinegar and 2 tablespoons [¼ cup] water to a boil. Remove from the heat, add the thinly sliced onion, and season with salt and pepper. Cover and let stand, stirring occasionally, while you prepare the rest of the meal.


Prep and cook the seafood

For the fish (salmon or halibut):
  • Pat the fish dry with a paper towel; season generously with salt and pepper.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the fish (skin side down for the salmon) and cook until lightly browned (and the salmon skin is crisp), 4 to 5 minutes. Turn and cook until the flesh is opaque and flaky, 2 to 4 minutes. Transfer to a plate to cool slightly. Using a fork, flake the fish into bite-size pieces (discarding the salmon skin if desired). Wipe out the pan.
While the fish cooks, prepare the garnishes and the salsa.

For the scallops:
  • Pat the scallops dry with a paper towel; season lightly with salt.
In a large frying pan over high heat, warm 2 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the scallops and cook without turning until golden brown on one side and starting to turn opaque, 2 to 4 minutes. Turn and continue cooking for about 30 seconds for translucent or 1 to 2 minutes for opaque. Transfer to a cutting board to cool slightly. Cut the scallops into ½-inch pieces. Wipe out the pan.
While the scallops cook, prepare the garnishes and the salsa.


Prep the garnishes and the salsa

  • Coarsely chop the tomatoes.
  • Cut the radishes in half, then cut the halves into thin half-moons.
  • Coarsely chop the cilantro.
In a small bowl, stir together the chile-lime salsa, tomatoes, and finely chopped onion. Season to taste with salt and pepper.


Crisp the tortillas

In the same pan used for the fish, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil over medium heat until hot but not smoking. Working in batches, add the tortillas and cook, turning once, until crisp, 2 to 4 minutes per side. Transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate and season with salt. Add more oil between batches if needed.


Set out the tortillas, seafood, pickled onion, salsa, radishes, cilantro, and guacamole and invite everyone to assemble their own tostadas.
