I made ceviche for dinner this evening. I started last night as you have to marinade it or “cook” it for 24 hours. I kind of followed this recipe……….

Shrimp Ceviche


1 lb. popcorn shrimp, thawed (or fish, scallops, oysters, etc.)

Juice of 3 limes

Combine these together thoroughly in a ceramic or glass bowl. Cover, pop in

the fridge and ignore for 24 hours. The lime juice “cooks” the seafood and

preserves it.

1/2 red onion finely chopped

1 or 2 jalapenos chopped, depending on taste (for hotter use habanero)

3 fresh tomatoes chopped

1 tsp. garlic powder

1/2 cup chopped cilantro

Juice of 3 limes

Salt and pepper to taste.

Take the shrimp from the fridge and drain thoroughly. In some of the

ceviche recipes we’ve found, they do not call for pouring off the first

lime marinade. But, we found the flavor is much fresher when you do.

Add the remaining ingredients and refrigerate for at least two hours before

serving. The thicker the seafood the longer it takes to marinade. Place

in tall cocktail glasses for a pretty presentation or over a bed of salad

greens with slices of avocado.

It was just OK to us. I bought a bag of mixed seafood at Trader Joe’s that included shrimp, calamari and scallops and it was WAY too fishy for this. I did not enjoy it that much. I like ceviche when i have had it in restaraunts and it is easy to prepare so I just need to practice.
I think Garrett is heading to the fridge for left over beef brisket! I don’t blame him.
I also made more breakfast bars form Elana’s Pantry at http://www.elanaspantry.com. I really like the pistacios instead of the almonds and I use toasted pumpkin seeds.
The kids did GREAT today. It has been along rainy day indoors so they have snacked a lot, mainly sticking to fruit, nuts, some gf crackers with cashew butter and some grain free dairy free brownies(see in Recipe/brownie category). They did NOT eat ceviche so they had french toast……again.
