Sharing a super easy Ceviche recipe today as well as a (skinny) Pink Paloma recipe on IGTV. Both are just the thing for your spring and summer quarantine snacky-snacks or zoom cocktail hours! Here’s hoping we’ll be back to sharing happy hours IRL, soon but in the meantime there’s no need to wait!
If this little round up of freshy-fresh ingredients doesn’t make you excited to make this, I can’t help you. However, if shrimp isn’t your thing I would like to suggest omitting the little crustaceans along with some of the orange juice and just making a pico style dip! Maybe try doubling the tomatoes + avocados too. But depending on your taste buds and preferences I highly suggest making this recipe your own and playing around with how much of each ingredient to put in!
MY SUPER SIMPLE CEVICHE RECIPE
- 1/2 lb. pre-cooked tail-off shrimp, fresh or frozen
- 1-1/2 or 2 navel oranges, juiced
- 1 or 2 limes, juiced
- 1/2 lemon, juiced
- 1/2 cucumber, peeled and finely chopped
- 1 or 2 Roma tomatoes, remove most seeds and dice (or a big handful of cherry tomatoes)
- 1/2 onion, white or purple or a shallot, chopped
- 1 or 1/2 bunch of cilantro, chopped
- 1 jalapeño, seeded + finely chopped (technically optional but it balances the orange juice so well I highly recommend adding at least a little!)
- 1 avocado, diced
- salt + pepper to taste
- Tortilla chips for serving
- PREP + MARINATE SHRIMP: If bigger shrimp, cut into bite sized pieces. In a medium bowl combine shrimp and juice from oranges, lime(s), and lemon. Cover and let sit in fridge for 1 hour.
- PREP REMAINING INGREDIENTS: Dice up cucumber, tomatoes, onion, cilantro, jalapeño, and avocado.
- COMBINE + SEASON: When the hour is up, toss everything together to taste. Finish with some salt and pepper to taste. That’s it! Serve with tortilla chips…. and a Paloma ;)
This girl makes me so happy! She’s never far, loves to help in the kitchen (or anywhere even if she complains about it, lol), but is also fiercely independent.
Also, meet our balcony area! I’d love to go off on a tangent about how it’s one of my favorite places in our home, and all my plans for fixing her up, but I’m going to resist the urge. Girlfriend deserves her own post, so stay tuned!
You know how some people look really cute eating food…
I am 1000% not one of those people.
But I am 1000% going to suggest you click on over to Instagram for my skinny (shhh) Paloma recipe and then add both sets of ingredients (ceviche and Paloma) to your shopping list so you can whip them up for Happy Hour on Friday… or today, because (insert day of the week) sometimes deserve happy hours too.
