Citrus Ceviche Salad

    1 hour 10 minutes

    Ceviche is the perfect summer seafood entree with its citrus, coriander and chilli flavours. The acid in the lemon and lime juices 'cooks' the seafood in the fridge. Different Latin American countries have different versions of ceviche so you can use any variation of fresh seafood in your own version.

    Altered ingredient amounts. I used 500g prawn, 500g scallops, and 500g fish, but kept the veggies the same. To facilitate eating with chips, I chopped up the fish to about the size of a fingernail. We ate this with globs of sour cream and guacamole, and some people even took some home. I made wraps out of the leftovers for lunch and dinner today, and I still have leftovers! This serves waaaay more people than I was expecting. The only problem is that it isn't as good the next day.  -  29 Sep 2008


    I've been looking for a good ceviche recipe and all I had to see was the picture to know this was the one. I am from the Sonoran Mex area and this is the closest thing I've found to what they serve in resturants in that area. Thank You  -  29 Sep 2008


    So good! We have ceviche (made from my grandmother's recipe) every summer, served in martini or margarita glasses, of course, and Javi's recipe is the real thing. It's low-cal, too, which makes it even better. Highly recommended.  -  29 Sep 2008
