Default Ceviche (Central Recipes)


Prep Time: 30 minutes or less | Cook Time: 3+ hours | Serves: 2
Dinner Seafood Central

Ingredients:






For those who need a bit of background, Ceviche is a South American dish composed of white fish, shrimp, scallops on their own or mixed together, with lots of coriander and sometimes corn and beans. Its not cooked with heat, but with the acid of citrus fruit; namely lime.

More information on ceviche can be found on the dish at the Wikipedia entry: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ceviche

While my ceviche is far from being authentic, I was glad to have made it as I hadn't had it since I was traveling on business to Miami over 3 years ago and some of the Peruvians I was working with treated me to a fantastic dinner.

Here are my ingredients:

10 fresh limes. (these gave me just over a cup of fresh juice but you can use the easier to use juice made from concentrate as well)
4 large scallops
6 extra large shrimp
A nice piece of halibut. (Ask your fishmonger to give you about 1 serving's worth)
1/2 a red onion
1 or 2 chiles
1 jalepeno pepper
1/2 cup fresh coriander (also known as cilantro)

Start with your limes.

Step 1:










Add the zest of 1 lime to a non-reactive (glass or plastic) bowl.

Then, roll each lime around on a hard surface while applying pressure with your hands so that they'll yield the most juice. Slice limes in half squeeze them out into a measuring cup and set aside.

Prepare your onions onions and peppers by dicing them neatly. Chop up your coriander, and set aside.

Step 2:






Take your lovely piece of halibut (or whatever white fish you decide on... tilapia, flounder, cod...whatever) and get your sharpest knife out and cut off about 1/3 of the filet's worth of fish like so.

Cut the fish down again into thin slices. Think sashimi.

Step 3:






Then, take your scallops, which always remind me of marshmallows... and cut them down widthwise so they're thinner too.
