A while back when things were a little crazy but I had a slight reprieve, I decided to have a little get together. I can’t help but feed people when I invite them over, so I decided the theme for the evening would be South America. After menu planning with Bestie, I made sure to shop for the appropriate pairings for our dishes. While I’ll be posting some of the recipes over the next few posts, my favorite one – the one that had me brushing off my own shoulders was the Ceviche!
It was actually remarkably easy but I was definitely reluctant. I mean seriously who cooks fish in lime?
1lb flounder, or other white fish
1 tsp salt
8-10 limes, juiced (enough to cover fish)
½ jalapeno, chopped
1 garlic clove, chopped
½ red onion, chopped
¼ cup cilantro, chopped
Cut fish into ½ inch strips. Place fish in bowl and add salt.
Pour lime juice over fish and cover with plastic wrap.
Let fish marinate in the fridge for at least 20 minutes or until the fish appears cooked (it will be a more solid white color rather than opaque).
Remove from fridge and stir in jalapeno, garlic, onion and cilantro.
Serve with plantain chips.
This ceviche was a hit! It is so incredibly easy to make, I can’t believe I was so scared. My guests loved it and I will definitely be making it again.
