This weekend I wanted to make food that looked expensive, but wasn't. I didn't do this for any reason except for my love of appetizers at restaurants, particularly when going out for tapas. Tapas are my favorite way of eating because I love sharing- well, mostly when others share with me. My recent favorite meal was the ceviche I had at a Cuban restaurant. I don't know what made me do it (probably because I'm obsessed with food), but I woke up on Saturday morning with the need to recreate it .
It was so easy even I could do it!
*2 cups of your favorite mango salsa (I used one from Costco, but Trader Joe's has a good one too)
*1/4 cup chopped red onion
*Sprinkle of cumin, chili powder, and salt and pepper
*Defrosted cooked shrimp (I used about 1 cup)
*Plantain chips for scoopage (I bought mine at Trader Joe's)
-Chop up onion, dump in all ingredients, and refrigerate for at least 3 hours
I served it in a wine glass since we are klassy and don't have martini glasses:
So what did I serve with this ceviche? Homemade spring rolls of course! Did I mention I kinda do a fusion thing a LOT? I serve Russian, Latin American, Asian, and random cuisines together. It just works. Don't tell me otherwise.
So tell me, are you a ceviche fan? What was the best thing you did this weekend?
