Mad For Mex….

Ceviche…Ceviche…Ceviche….

My Favorite dish on the planet to eat, any time..  any place… anywhere. I like to eat my ceviche with octopus, squid, whitefish, conch, scallops or shrimp. This is a really easy and healthy recipe that my boyfriend found and we have been happily making it ever since.  Fiesta! After all it is Friday…  Enjoy! 

What You Need:

  • Freshly squeezed lime juice from 6-8 limes
  • 1 Pound jumbo shrimp, peeled and de-veined (chopped or whole, according to taste)
  • 1 White onion, finely chopped
  • 5 Roma tomatoes, seeded and chopped
  • 1 Cucumber, peeled and finely chopped
  • 1/3 Cup fresh cilantro, chopped (yum)
  • 2 Cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 Jalapeño chile peppers, minced
  • 1 Bunch radishes, diced
  • 1/2 Cup green olives, finely chopped (optional)
  • 3 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 Avocados, peeled, pitted and diced
  • Salt to taste
  • Pinch of oregano
  • Light or baked tortilla chips or crackers

What You Have To Do:

Put the shrimp in a bowl proceeding to pour the lime juice over, cover the shrimp completely. Cover those bad boys up and refrigerate 30 minutes to an hour, or until slightly firm and opaque.

Now add the onion, tomatoes, cucumber, cilantro, garlic, jalapeños, radishes, green olives, and last but not least olive oil. Toss to combine, then cover and refrigerate for 1 more hour. When you are ready to serve the yummy dish, add avocados, salt and oregano per your taste. Serve chilled with baked tortilla chips or crackers. Garnish with lime slices… and have a margarita… (try low sugar and keep it healthy!)  

Have a Wonderful Weekend! XOXO
