2 cloves garlic, minced
4 Tbsp butter
3/4 C cream
1 lb bay scallops (the small ones)
1/4 C dry white wine
16 Ritz crackers
4 Tbsp grated parmigiano-reggiano

Set rack in upper 1/3 of oven and preheat to 400 degrees. Divide garlic between 4 gratin dishes. Add 1 Tbsp butter and 3 Tbsp cream to each; place in oven until butter melts. Remove from oven and add about 4 oz bay scallops and 1 Tbsp dry white wine to each dish. Spoon sauce over scallops to evenly coat. Top each dish with 4 crumbled Ritz crackers, then sprinkle with 1 Tbsp cheese. Bake until scallops are opaque, about 10 minutes. Turn oven to broil and cook until topping is lightly browned. Serves 4.

1 lb. sushi-grade tuna, sliced ½” thick
½ cup diced red onion
¾ c. fresh lime juice
½ tsp. fresh ground black pepper
1 large avocado, cut into ½” dice
¼ c. chopped cilantro
Kosher salt

Place tuna in a single layer on a baking sheet; freeze 15 minutes. Meanwhile, dice the red onion. Juice 4 to 6 limes to make ¾ cup juice. Cut tuna into ½” cubes. Put them in a ceramic or glass bowl (not metal). Use a plastic (not metal) spatula/spoon for stirring. Mix in onion, lime juice, and pepper. Cover and refrigerate 1 hour, stirring every 15 to 20 minutes. The tuna changes color slightly as it “cures”. Just before serving, fold in the diced avocado and cilantro; season to taste with salt. Garnish with whole cilantro leaves. Fun served with thick Kettle-fried potato chips to scoop up the goodness!
