    Re: ceviche recipes

    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.

    ceviche recipes

    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.
