Mexican Ceviche

Mexican Ceviche created by Ashley Cuoco

This dish is a regular served on the beaches of Mexico. Serve it as a seafood appetizer or as a side salad dish. You can alter it to suit your own taste. Make it as spicy or as mild as you wish. My friends all love it. I often use shrimp & fish or shrimp & scallops - when I do this I do not marinate the shrimp as the shrimp tend to get tough. I steam the shrimp and add them a few hours before serving as I mix all the ingredients together. In Mexico when they make this they often add sea water (not recommened). If you are using frozen fish, choose a firm-fleshed fish and make sure it is fully thawed with as much moisture as possible removed.

directions

  • Dice the fish (approximately 1/2-inch dice if using shrimp use cleaned shrimp).
  • Marinate fish in the lime juice in the fridge overnight (this step cooks the fish).
  • Stir often.
  • Pour off most of the lime juice (just leave it moist).
  • Add remaining ingredients except lettuce, avocado and olive. Do this preferably a few hours before serving & refrigerate.
  • Toss well and arrange in individual serving bowls that are lined with the lettuce leaves.
  • If you wish garnish with sliced avocado and sliced black olives.

    Can I do this on a Thursday, drain it, freeze it and travel with it three hours on Sunday, then add the veggies? I know there won't be a food safety issue, but wondering about texture.
