Shrimp Ceviche Recipe

img_6960

This is one of the best ceviches you will ever taste. Done in the traditional style of Quito, Ecuador, this recipe is quick, healthy and exotic. Served with popcorn on top and tostones, your guests will love this and wonder when you became such a gourmet cook!

Contains shrimp, limes, orange juice, tomatoes & more – absolutely delicious. Viva Quito!

Serves 4-6

Ingredients:

 

2 pounds of shrimp
1 large red onion 3 medium tomatoes
3 cups of fresh orange juice (preferably use sour oranges or you can use Tropicana pure natural orange juice with no pulp)
1 cup of lemon juice (fresh squeezed lemons)
3 tablespoons of ketchup
1 tablespoon of mustard
1 tablespoon of fresh chopped cilantro or parsley
2 tablespoons of vegetable oil
Salt and pepper to taste

Preparation:

Boil water salt and pepper in a pan. After it boils, add shrimp. Let it boil for 3 minutes (or until shrimp becomes lightly red) and remove from heat. Pour out water and let shrimp cool. Don’t let them overcook! If they are overcooked, the shrimp will be a little chewy, but still delicious.

Cut the onion into long thing strips -julienne style-. Place them in a bowl with water and 2 tablespoons of salt and let it settle for 10 minutes. Then gently rinse with water. This will remove the bitter bite from the onion and make it sweeter.

Cut tomatoes into small squares.

In a large bowl, mix the onion, tomatoes, orange and lemon juice, ketchup, mustard, cilantro (or parsley), oil, salt and pepper. Once the shrimp has cooled, add shrimp and mix.

Serve with fried plantains (fried green bananas) or plantain chips, popcorn and maiz tostado (dry corn kernels). Enjoy the classic ecuadorian ceviche recipe, preferably with a light pilsener beer.

This recipe is done in the traditional Peruvian style. If you are able to get tilapia or corvina (Chilean sea bass), those work best. The traditional way to make this recipe is with raw fish, but you may also cook the fish beforehand if you prefer. Personally, I always cook the fish first.

Serves 6

Ingredients:

2 pounds of tilapia fillets, diced (you can also use other white fish fillets)
1 ½ cup of fresh lemon juice
1 fresh yellow hot pepper, seeded and chopped (if you can’t find it, use a habanero pepper)
½ cup of celery, chopped
2 garlic cloves, chopped
2 large red onions, cut into long thing strips – julienne style
3 tablespoons of fresh cilantro, chopped
1 cup of lemon juice
Boiled corn, cut in 2 inch pieces
Boiled sweet potatoes, cut in slices
Lettuce leaves

Preparation:

Put the fish into a large glass bowl with the lemon juice (1 ½ cup), cover, and put in the fridge for at least 2 hours.

Drain the lemon juice from the fish and add the hot pepper, celery, garlic, onions, cilantro, salt, pepper and the rest of the lemon juice (1 cup). Put in the fridge until ready to serve.

Serve the ceviche on top of lettuce leaves. Enjoy with corn and sweet potatoes on the side!

Very easy, very tasty recipe. This is a good one to try if you are less adventurous, as most people have eaten tuna before, so it’s not that big of a jump. Try it, it only takes about 10 minutes to prepare from the moment you get all the groceries out of the refrigerator.

Serves 4

Ingredients:

2 cans of solid white tuna packed in water
4 lemons, juiced
1 medium red onion, peeled and finely chopped
2 medium fresh diced tomatoes
1 diced fresh jalapeño (without seeds)
2 tablespoons of diced celery
2 tablespoon of chopped fresh cilantro and parsley (for garnish)
1 teaspoon of minced garlic glove
1 tablespoon of olive oil
Lettuce leaves
Salt and pepper to taste

Preparation:

Drain the tuna.

Mix the lemon juice with the onion, jalapeño and garlic. Gently add the tuna and allow it to stand for few minutes. Then add the tomatoes, celery, olive oil, salt and pepper.

Serve over the lettuce leaves and garnish with springs of cilantro and parsley.

This recipe is really healthy and may be the easiest to make. Seriously, it takes less than 10 minutes!

Serve in a martini glass for extra effect…

I found this to be particularly easy even though it’s a little dry for my taste, maybe I would add a couple of oranges to it and one more lemon. Making ceviche sounds kind of hard at first, but once you get the “taste” down, you can experiment and make the appetizer very quickly and impress your friends!

Dairy Free

Hi all,

After doing a bit of thinking, I came to the conclusion that ceviche isn’t only easy to make and healthy, it’s also dairy free! I know lactose intolerance can be a big deal to people, so I was pleased when I realized this. It gives me something else to brag about when telling people about my favorite dish!

I also found this site – Dairy Free Recipes to have some really tasty things to choose from as well. Check it out!
