Ingredients

  • 1/2 pound jumbo sea scallops, (6 to 8)
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped red onion

  • 1/4 cup ketchup

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the scallops and poach gently until they are cooked just to rare, about 2 minutes. Drain well and chill for about 30 minutes, or up to overnight.
