Mix the citrus juices, onion, chilli, sugar and a pinch of sea salt. Leave for 1 hour before tasting and adjusting the sweetness and seasoning, if necessary.
Pour the citrus dressing over the seafood. Cover with clingfilm and leave to marinate for 1 hour in the fridge, until the fish and scallops look opaque.
Combine the avocado, tomatoes and coriander with the seafood. Use a slotted spoon to lift the fish out of the citrus juice and serve immediately. Serve with crusty bread and a green salad.
