Ceviche..I lived on this growing up in Acapulco - this is the closet I've seen to the real thing - we didn't use scallops, but otherwise, this is the real deal, Mexican style. South American countries all have their own wonderful types of ceviche, but this will always be my fave. Takes FRESH to a new level!
Zesty Lime Shrimp and Avocado Salad: 1 lb jumbo cooked shrimp, peeled and deveined, chopped* 1 medium tomato, diced 1 hass avocado, diced 1 jalapeno, seeds removed, diced fine 1/4 cup chopped red onion 2 limes, juice of 1 tsp olive oil 1 tbsp chopped cilantro salt and fresh pepper to taste
If you have not yet had the pleasure of eating ceviche for yourself, it may sound like an odd concept. Due to the widespread popularity of sushi and sashimi, raw fish and other seafood is not as much of a novelty as it used to be, but the idea of cooking these foods by marinating them in lime juice can be a strange one to those unaccustomed to the dish.
