Mixed Ceviche Recipe (Octupus, Shrimp and Scallops)

This recipe is really good in the summer. Why settle for normal summer seafood fare like breaded shrimp when you can go all out and enjoy an exotic seafood medley like this?

Serves 4


7 ounces octopus, cooked
shrimp, tails blanched
7 ounces scallops, cooked
1 red onion, sliced very fine
1/2 red aji limo chile, minced
1/2 yellow aji limo chile, minced
16 key limes, juiced
2 sweet potatoes, boiled (of the camote variety, if you can find them)
1 large fresh ear corn on the cob, cooked and cut into rounds (choclo variety, if you can find them)


Cut the octopus into bite-size pieces. Leave whole if using baby octopus.

Cut scallops into small pieces.

Mix seafood with onion in large bowl. Wash and drain thoroughly.

Season mixture with salt and aji limo chiles.

Toss preparation quickly in lime juice. Refresh with ice cubes, mixing well. Remove ice immediately before it has a chance to melt.

Serve on bed of lettuce with sweet potato (camote, if you can find it) and boiled corn rounds (choclo, if available).

Clam Ceviche Recipe

Serves 4


1 pound of fresh clam meat (you can also try canned clams)
1 red onion, cut in fine diced pieces
1 tablespoon of minced garlic
1 green bell pepper, cut in fine diced pieces
1 jalapeño, cut in fine diced pieces
3 limes, juiced
1 tablespoon of olive oil
½ bunch of fresh diced cilantro
1 avocado
Salt and pepper to taste


Mix the clam meat, onion, garlic, pepper and jalapeño. Then add the lemon juice, olive oil, cilantro, salt and pepper. Put the entire mix in the fridge for 20-30 min.

Leave the avocado until the last step because as soon as you peel it, it will darken. 5 minutes before serving, dice the avocado and add it gently to the mix.

It’s ready to eat! Enjoy with tortilla chips and a cold beer. I told you this was easy…

Easy Ceviche Recipe – Video

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!
