Blanch the shrimp in boiling water until no longer translucent, 1 to 2 minutes. Drain and refresh in cold water. Cut into 1/2-inch pieces.
Combine the shrimp, scallops, salmon, red pepper, scallions, jalapeno, and lime juice in a large bowl. Refrigerate, covered, for 2 to 3 hours, stirring occasionally. Drain off most of the liquid.
