Recipe: Ceviche

My return from vacation ceviche - sadly no beach in sight

I scouted some recipe ideas online - here was my creation
1 lb shrimp
(no tails - and these were actually pre-cooked, even though the lime juice will cook raw shrimp)
The juice of 3 fresh squeezed limes, plus about 1/8-1/4 cup bottled lime juice
let lime and shrimp marinate all night in fridge - then add the following, stir,
and serve with tortilla chips
5 green onions, chopped
1/2 tomato, diced (not a big tomato fan here)
1 piece of celery, chopped
freshly chopped parsley and cilantro (about 1/4 cup total)
ground pepper
splash of olive oil
dash of hot sauce

One of the best things about traveling to the islands is the prevalence of seafood.   Over my 10 days in Aruba and Curacao, I had ceviche three times.   As you can see from the pictures below, the ocean adds a delicious quality to the food.

  1. Yay! Ceviche is something that I haven't prepared at home, yet, but I really love ceviche!!! Good job!

  2. I had ceviche for the first time when I was in Peru earlier this year and now I try it everywhere I can!
