Avocado Shrimp Ceviche-Estillo Sarita

Rating: 4.59 stars

A tried and true ceviche recipe to be enjoyed for a Sunday brunch in our cafe. It is believed by most Latinos that the best time to eat ceviche is on a sunny day. Rainy days cause stomach cramps and nightmares. Of course most Latinos (especially my wife) can make a good ceviche blindfolded on any day rain or shine, in my opinion. Excellent for an appetizer in smaller portions or as a meal itself. Personally I enjoy this with an ice cold beer on the side.

This recipe is a staple in Mexico. Raw seafood is cooked by the lime juice! Now don't wrinkle your nose! You would never know the seafood was not cooked prior to serving. Make sure to always use the freshest ingredients! You may substitute many types of seafood for scallops, for example: halibut, red snapper, flounder, or swordfish.

This recipe is one of my family's favorites. It can be served on corn tostadas or with corn chips as a meal or as an appetizer, as it is normally served in most authentic Mexican restaurants. Goes best with cold beer! Don't forget the hot sauce.

This has always been a crowd pleaser in my home. This is wonderful as an appetizer served on tostadas or even with tortilla chips. Make sure to refrigerate before you serve, it tastes best when very cold. I like to serve on tostadas with a thin layer of mayonnaise for a nice refreshing lunch.

If I were ceviche, I would want to be this recipe for its flawless simplicity and popular appeal! Although this recipe says it serves six, two of us polished off the whole bowl, no problem! Goes great topped with a dash of your favorite hot pepper sauce.

I've looked all over the net and haven't found a shrimp ceviche quite like this one! My friends absolutely love it and beg me for the recipe! You can always double it for larger parties--it goes FAST! Serve as a dip with tortilla chips or as a topping on a tostada spread with mayo. The fearless palate might like this with hot sauce.

This three seafood ceviche is worth trying! Serve it in martini or margarita glasses and garnish with cilantro leaves and slices of lime. Serve with chips. I make everything ahead and marinate, but don't put the avocado in until close to serving.

Mahi Mahi Ceviche

This mahi mahi ceviche requires a little bit of knife work, but when you consider the seasonal advantage of not using the stove, and just how tasty this really is, I think it's all worthwhile. You can also use shrimp, scallops, swordfish, and snapper.
