I've teamed up with the team of ShopRite Potluck Bloggers to bring some wholesome, yummy goodness to the
interwebs. The Potluck panel consists of foodies who have combined their passion for food, cooking, and blogging
onto one place (see more here). Welcome to Potluck, where everyone brings something to the table!
I thought I'd kick off my first of several monthly recipes with an easy, peasy summer dish that is
also perfect for Memorial Day! Ceviche, anyone?
My uncle and I are serious lovers of sushi, Mexican, and everything under the ceviche sun. Although he has the luxury
of eating it year-round (he lives in the Sunshine State), I took it upon myself to make this dish the very first second I
had! Sure, ceviche can be prepared at any time of year, but I'm not one to do so in the dead of winter. Cold dishes + cold weather = no bueno. With the warm weather upon us, you can bet your booty I put my chef hat on and got to cooking
Just like my favorite Crockpot recipes, this meal also cooks itself. It's not too good to be true. It’s ceviche – a dish of seafood that’s “cooked” using citrus juices and served up with ingredients like tomato, jalapeño and avocado. YUM! Let's dig in, shall we?
Directions: Peel and devein the shrimp. Chop the shrimp into small pieces. Prepare the veggies. Mix the shrimp, tomato, garlic, jalapeño and avocado in a bowl. Squeeze the citrus juice on top and combine (there should be enough liquid to cover the shrimp). Cover and refrigerate for at least 6 hours or until the shrimp have turned from translucent to opaque. Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper to taste and top with chopped cilantro. Enjoy!
I paired mine with a sweet potato and black beans (not pictured). However, good ol' tortilla chips pair just as well! I recommend One Potato, Two Potato Root Veggie chips or Food Should Taste Good Blue Corn chips!
Thanks, ShopRite, for the opportunity!
