Summatime Ceviche.

Now that summer has officially hit, it’s time to lighten things up a bit with some fresh and easy recipes! It’s been in the high 90’s the last couple weeks, so what better of a way then to tap into some yummy Latin dishes. I am a vegetarian for the last seven/eight years but I do eat fish on occasion. This particular dish is only jumbo prawns, but you can add other white fish if desired.

What you’ll Need:

  • tomato (diced) (2)
  • organic jumbo prawns 2/3 lb
  • cilantro
  • white or red onion (chopped)
  • lemon (2)
  • lime (5)
  • avocado
  • ketchup (1 teaspoon) (Sounds weird but it’s for the cocktail flavor)
  • salt (dash)
  • pepper (dash)
  • jalapeno (diced-I used half)
  • Hot Sauce (tobacco, or I used Whole Foods 365 brand Jalapeno Hot Sauce)

Dice up your ingredients, throw in a bowl and add lemon and lime. (Yes, it’s that easy!!) For this one,  I added about 5 limes- and 2 lemons. There was extra juice so depending on the juiciness of the limes you could probably use 3 or 4. I always make more than I need to  (my portions are frequently off while cooking  for one) but I would say this feeds about 4 people. I let the ceviche sit in the fridge (covered) for about 45 min. The seafood cooks pretty fast so I would suggest checking depending on the color from uncooked fish to cooked. It’s also recommended to cook the seafood in the lemon and lime as it loses flavor if you cook before and then add. You can eat this by itself, with a corn tortilla, chips or on a tostada. Hope you enjoy!
