Shrimp And Fish Ceviche With An Asian Twist
Whenever I come up with a new dish for my repertoire I take photos of it and eventually store them in a box so I can feel encouraged to make it again. Last month I decided I wanted to make ceviche for the entire family and I didn't want a plain/old boring dish. If you have never tasted this delicacy let me just tell you it's basically fish, shrimp and often other sea creatures too cooked in citrus juices like limes, lemons, tangerines... The most common one is the Peruvian ceviche which people love but I'm not into ketchup so this is how I'd recommend you make it. The final product is a mixture between a tartare and a carpaccio. Heavenly, really. If you want to make this...


This is what you need:
01 8 cups of raw, peeled and deveined shrimp
02 8 cups of cubed white fish
03 4 cups or lemon juice
04 2 tablespoons of grinned ginger
05 2 tablespoons of sesame oil
06 4 tablespoons of sesame seeds
07 1 chopped white onion
08 1 tablespoon of oyster sauce
09 4 avocados
10 salt and pepper to taste

This is what you need to do:
In a large bowl place the peeled shrimp and cubed fish and add the 4 cups of lemon juice, allow it to rest for about 10 minutes and add the chopped onions, ginger, sesame oil, oyster sauce and let it rest for 20 more minutes. You will notice the the transparency of the fish and shrimp will begin to change and it will start to look cooked. You will determined how "cooked" you want it but I advice that you don't let it sit for over 1 hour because the taste will change dramatically. Once you're ready to serve add salt, pepper, sprinkle with sesame seeds and top with avocado. Serve it with crostini and a cold cup of sake.

Tada!

    1. He would! I sometimes make it as an appetizer when I have my friends over for grilled seafood and it goes amazingly well with clean drinks like martinis and since he's the one with knowledge in this case I bet he'd come up with a killer drink to go with it.

  6. Wow, this looks so good! I feel like eating it right now. And that's pretty amazing, as I've just had Ben & Cherry's ice cream. I usually never feel like eating anything else after I've had ice cream (other than more ice cream).

    1. Oh golly! Ice cream is the one thing that makes me weak at the knees and I agree, there's no such thing as having enough icecream, specially if you are blue. Thank you for commenting, Helena!

  7. I love ceviche, Ana! Here in Chile, bounded on the north by Peru we eat ceviche a lot! ... Of course it helps a lot the fact that we have a very long coastline along the Pacific Ocean, and therefore very good fish and seafood, always fresh! ... One secret, add cilantro before serving it ... adds an exquisite freshness!
    Thank you very much for your comment!
    I hope you're having a wonderful week!
    Big hugs!

    1. Hi Ines! For some reason I thought you lived in Spain. I can't believe we are so close yet so far. Yes! Cilantro IS one of the best parts of ceviche. Oh golly! If one day I make it to Peru I'll definitely eat my way through it.
