I went out and thinned out my lemon tree today. With all the rains we have had the tree was filled with orange sized lemon!! :o

So I have to use up some and get rid of some. Anyone interested?

Time to make some ceviche and I know there are just as many ceviche recipes as there are of chile recipes. Please post away and I'll type mine up tonight and may be some pictures later.

OOOOHHH!! A sweet one huh? I love scallops, but I never made it with scallops. I should try that some time. Thanks MM.

Here is mine and I can't say that it's my own since everyone makes it with may be a little variation of each other. But I did not take it from anyone else.

I chose to do this with oysters, but the original recipe is for mussels in a shell (choros) and it's a Peruvian dish. I will explain later what the difference is to what I made.

1 1 bottle of fresh Pacific oysters (Aren't they great? Already shelled and cleaned).
2 1/2 cup of diced onions
3 1/2 cup of diced tomato
4 1/2 cup of minced cilantro
5 1/2 teaspoon of salt
6 1/2 teaspoon of pepper
7 1 Tai chili pepper (HOT [smiley=evil.gif]) ground.
8 1/3 cup of lemon juice.
9 baked yam, chilled.
10 lettuce

The chili used in Peru is the yellow chili and it has a mild unique flavor. I don't expect that you would be able to find this variety here unless you have some seeds and a green thumb. If you do have some seeds, send me some!! ;D

Poach the oysters for 3-5 minutes depending of the size of the oysters. In my case, I had some big one. They came in 3 per bottle. Take them out and cut to bite size. Then put it in the freezer to chill while you prepare the other ingredients. Hint: Save the water that you used to poach the oyster with to use in a clam chowder. It adds a wonderful flavor to it.

After 15 minutes in the freezer, it's cold enough to work with so mix items 1-8 and let the mixture marinate for 1/2 hour to 45 minutes in the frig.

Serve on a bed of lettuce and a piece of yam.

This dish is usually served with a bbq. A typical and unique bbq item from Peru is called an "anticucho" (skewer). It's made of beef hart meat. Also it's served along with hot salsa picante, corn on the cob and boiled potatoes. (Stay tuned)

The original dish as I said earlier is for mussels in a 1/2 shell. Items 1-8 are mixed and placed back in a 1/2 shell to marinate. Then it's served as an appetizer by itself.

Do u happen to know where I can find anticuchos? I lived in Peru for 8 and sure do miss the food. I found yellow chili,rocoto, and some other Peruvian products in SF, but no heart. Anyone Know of a Peruvian market in Sac area. Thanks

I have stored away an old list of Peruvian restaurants somewhere and will have to dig it out. But all of these are in the bay area. When I find it I will PM it to you and anyone else that will ask. I will look for it this evening. Just beware that the list is about 3 years old and some of these may have closed or moved.
The other choice is to make your own! ;) I will put up my recipe when I have the time.

Try this one taught to me by a sushi chef.

Lemon and lime juice
tons of chopped garlic
chopped green onions
Louisiana Hot sauce
Tobasco sauce
Fresh thinly sliced halibut

Let it sit in the frig for a couple hours.

Hot and spicy but guaranteed to warm you up!

I came home with a bunch of Monkey face eel filets from a poke-poling trip last weekend and I'll bet they would work great as ceviche. Actually I don't have a bunch left. We put some on the grill the night we caught them at Lawson's Landing and they were gone quick; a little salt and pepper and butter and they were gone as soon as they started flaking... and then we fried some in a beer batter the next night in Morgan Hill and served them with malt vinegar and they were gone so quick, again, I took the rest of the stash and hid it in the freezer. Sooo, I probably got enough Monkey Face eel left for a cerviche party for one.... Me. 8-)

FF, no no. That's not acceptable. Seems to me you'll have to go fishing again to get some more. ;) ;D

And where is the poke poling repot?? ::)

Mother in law cooked ceviche last night. OMG was it good. We used rockfish. Dont know the exact recipe, but i will share it when i find out.

Here is a picture a mussel ceviche. Same recipe as the one I posted earlier. Only that it's served on its shell. After having it tonight I suggest cutting the mussels in 1/2 since they are so big. (I used the frozen farmed mussels) Just boil them slightly (2-3 mins when frozen) then let them chill in the frig. Then add the salsa on top when ready to serve. It makes a great appetizer.
