    CASA HERRADURA BAY SCALLOP CEVICHE Chef Mark Williams, Brown-Forman Corporation Serves: 8 Ingredients 1 pound fresh bay scallops 1 cups fresh lime juice ½ cup Casa Herradura Silver Tequila 3 tbs. diced white onion 1 cup ripe tomatoes, diced into 1/2 inch pieces 1 cup fresh tomatillos, chopped into 1/2-inch pieces Fresh hot green chiles (2 to 3 serranos or 1 to 2 jalapenos), stemmed, seeded and finely chopped 1/3 cup chopped cilantro, plus a few leaves for garnish 1 to 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil Salt Preparation:   1. In a 1 1/2-quart glass or stainless steel bowl, combine the scallops, lime juice, Casa Herradura Tequila and onion. Use enough juice to cover the fish and allow it to float freely; too little juice means unevenly "cooked" fish.   2. Cover and refrigerate for about 4 hours, until the scallops no longer look raw .   3. In a large bowl, mix together the tomatoes, green chiles, cilantro, olives and olive oil. Stir in the first ingredients and season with salt, usually about 1/2 teaspoon.   4. Cover and refrigerate until serving time.   Serve in a margarita or martini glass rimmed with coarse salt.
