Yesterday was my son’s birthday.  That means I am recovering from cake coma.
Typically after I throw a party, I go on a cooking hiatus.  Today I wanted something simple to prepare but healthy to help bring everything in my body back in balance.  Ceviche is the way I went.  Fresh, healthy, super simple to prepare and virtually no dirty dishes involved.

Ceviche is one of those foods that scares people.
Are you scared of the thought of making ceviche?  Don’t be, it is one of the easiest recipes to prepare.  It is nothing more than seafood with citrus juice and fresh vegetables.
I promise that is it, it is that simple!  Typically you need to marinade the seafood in the citrus juice for it to cook the seafood.  That is right you don’t actually turn on the oven to cook ceviche, the acid in the citrus does all the work.  What it leaves you with is some seafood that has a super fresh flavor.
To make ceviche even simpler I used already cooked and frozen shrimp so the prep time is down to about 5 minutes, the rest of the time the ceviche hangs out in the refrigerator to marinade and then you serve it up.  I like to enjoy mine with a fresh salad.
Have you every made ceviche?  If so, any tips or ingredients that you enjoy using?
