I like spoons because they make certain foods easy to eat.

This is my wife's family recipe. Its extremely simple compared to a lot of the more gourmet recipes you find today, but it's authentic and extremely delicious. Sorry there are no portions, everything is just eyeballed.

Raw shrimp, deveined and diced
Diced Cucumber
Diced Onion
Diced Jalapeno
Diced Tomato
Chopped Cilantro

A shiat-ton of limes
Dried Chiles de Arbol

1.) Puree the chiles with the lime juice in blender until you have a fairly smooth liquidy mixture.

2.) Mix all of your diced ingredients in a large bowl, pour your chile/lime mixture over the top, season with salt, stir, allow to rest for an a while until the shrimp are cooked to your liking

3.) Enjoy with tortilla chips or tostadas, pickled onions (lime juice, thin sliced red onion, thin sliced habanero), sliced avocado and a copious amount of beer

Ohhhh.  I know what I want for dinner now.  I love ceviche.

Another variation that my wife's family frequently makes is called Aguachiles, which uses fresh Serrano peppers for the chile/lime mixture, making it a bright green color (as opposed to the previous recipe, which is red) and considerably spicier.

Medium-Large Whole Shrimp, peeled and deveined, heads left on (you can remove the heads if you want to)
Red Onion, halved and sliced thin
Cucumber, peeled and sliced into thin rounds
Serrano Chiles
A Lot of Limes

1.) Puree the lime and serrano chiles until you have a smooth bright green mixture, salt to taste
2.) Arrange your shrimp all pretty like around a deep platter. Arrange your sliced onion and cucumbers the same. Pour your chili mixture over the top and allow it to rest until your shrimp are cooked.

It usually looks kind of like this...

Is that "for a while" like an hour? 15 minutes? I've seen some recipes that are damn near day-long waits while the acids work.

it's easy & delicious, i could live on the stuff all summer ... i use white sea bass if i can find it, otherwise something with relatively firm meat so  it doesn't fall apart. this is a small recipe, because i'm the only one in the house who eats it - so, adjust a bit depending on how much you wanna make:

1 - 1 1/2 lbs of white sea bass
2  large lemons
2  or 3 large limes
1 orange
1 bunch cilantro
1 bermuda onion ...

cut the fish into cubes, around 3/4 inch square .. juice all of the citrus, then chop cilantro & onion .. put fish into a container w/a tight seal (tupperware is ok, but glass is better); add cilantro & onion, then pour citrus juice in and stir a bit so all of the fish is covered. seal it up and wait a day ...

serve in a chilled beer mug w/chips & mmaybe guacomole, if you like also you'll need a good beer and perhapps a margarita ...

This sounds excellent. Thanks, I really need to give it a shot. Is there a particular reason for specifying bermuda onions?

It really depends on how well you like your shrimp cooked. My wife and in-laws eat it pretty much like the ceviche in the picture, which is almost entirely raw; and from my experiences eating it at other family members and friend's homes, that seems to be pretty much the norm. So they might let it sit for about 30 minutes or so before eating, maybe an hour at the absolute most. If you were wanting to really cook the shrimp all the way through, I imagine you would have to let it sit for at least a few hours, maybe more.

Adjective Bird Whiskey: I like spoons because they make certain foods easy to eat.


i prefer the stabbing action that a fork brings. i can impale meat, or veggies, and comfortably bring them into my mouth area, without all that dropping food on the floor stuff that happens with a spoon. Also, if the guy next to me gets out of line, i can stab him in the eye. it's surprising how often that happens.

How does one define "cooking", exactly?  ...because "cooking without heat" seems to contradict itself.

(from dictionary.com)

cook
verb (used with object)
1. to prepare (food) by the use of heat, as by boiling, baking, or roasting.
2. to subject (anything) to the application of heat.
3. Slang. to ruin; spoil.
4. Informal. to falsify, as accounts: to cook the expense figures.

My ex wife had an infection of her ceviche. Took a while for the medication to clear it up. Meant no sex for a while. Of course this is how I discovered that she was fooling around on me and went on to become an ex.
 
2014-04-03 05:17:24 PM  
The best ceviche I ever had was from a beach vendor in a tiny town on the west coast of Mexico.  There's something about seafood that came from the ocean less than an hour ago and fresh-picked limes that is hard to reproduce, especially up here in the temperate rain forest where limes and cilantro and hot peppers aren't exactly u-pick commodities and where salmon is the most likely caught fish.

While I ate it I had to listen to my (now ex) wife going on and on about how I was going to die of tropical foodborne diseases.

Ceviche isn't the only heatless presentation--just a darn tasty one.  We can also bring up carpaccio, tartare, sashimi... :)

I've not been brave enough to try shellfish as a ceviche.  I'll usually go with some coarsely chopped whitefish with tomato, cucumber, some fresh herbs and lots of citrus.  Don't forget to add some of the zest to punch up the flavor.

As long as I'm eating something acidic, I might as well go for a Primal Margarita.  None of that blue crap, not a glorified slurpee, just a simple 3:1:1 of reposado tequila, orange liqueur and fresh lime juice with a pinch of salt.  Shake and pour over ice.  Nice and sour and a real kick in the teeth.
 
2014-04-03 05:28:07 PM  
If you want something different, try doing a ceviche with a highly acidic white wine like sauvignon blanc...you get the wine taste along with the fish ;)

Heat would infer 'energy' or cooking with 'acid' like lemon/lime juice aka 'pickling'.  It's all about how you can denature the proteins.

You can't beat a good 1 or 6 dozen snot rockets, with a cold "insert your snobby beer of choice here".

The stuff my wife and I make at home is extremely simple.



Diced fish. Choose whatever you like here -- we typically use tilapia or pampano.
Red onions, sliced thin.
Hot yellow pepper, a.k.a. "ají amarillo", sliced very thin.
Cilantro.
Lots of limes. Key limes will do great, but will result in more work.
Salt, black pepper, and ajinomoto to taste.

Mix the fish, onion, and yellow pepper together. Squeeze the limes over the mix and stir. Season with the salt, black pepper, and ajinomoto. Let it rest until the lime juice has cooked the fish. Serve on romaine lettuce leaves with slices of boiled potatoes, sweet potatoes, fried cassava, and/or toasted cancha corn.

I like to think I have a pretty well defined sense of culinary adventure.  There are very few foods I've encountered that I haven't thought "oh, cool, something new".  Raw oysters are one of those rare exceptions.  My grandfather's favorite dish in the world was pan fried oysters and I learned to cook them just for that reason.  I could never stomach the flavor nor the texture.  I can imagine quite well what the raw ones would be like and, well,

See, I love it when cucumber is added. Many places simply do not do this and it's just left wanting.

Well, you're probably technically right that its not "cooking".  But its just a term people use when using only acidity to make raw meats/seafood OK to eat.

Its more of a casually-used phrase.

I love Ceveche when done in a way I can handle,  The problem is that my stomach gets violently angry if I consume any kind of green chile or pepper.  If made using red chiles I'm fine, but so many recipes rely on the younger green ones.

Within that, my favorite preparations involve a bit of fruit to go in it, mango or guava usually, about as much fruit as there is onion.  I've used all kinds of fish, but my absolute favorite is tuna if you can find some of good quality.  Tuna plus some kind of shellfish (usually shrimp) is pretty amazing too.  I'd give a proper recipe but honestly I've always been the guy helping make Ceveche, never the chef.

As far as the other raw food preps go, I love almost all of them.  Not a big fan of raw oysters, sadly; I've tried for years to develop a taste and never could manage to, regardless of the manner they're prepared.  Even oyster shooters are just plain awful for me.  You'd think enough alcohol could make it good, but noooooooooooooooooooooooooo....

2014-04-03 07:47:53 PM  
I've tried a couple of different random fish in ceviche, i like swai in it sometimes, with onion/tomato/cucumber/chile/lime juice/cilantro/etc.
I actually don't care for it too much but my daughter loves it.
My ex, senor nosehair, used to dump tapatio and clamato into it.
