More About This Recipe

  • Summer is in full swing; days spent relaxing by the pool, playing with the kids at the park or hosting fun summer parties. When hosting a summer fiesta, I like to serve a tray of cold appetizers, because no one really likes to crank up the stove on a hot summer day. This is why I like to serve ceviche: shrimp soaked in citrus juice until tenderly cooked topped off with crisp vegetables and a bit of jalapeño for heat. Tuck your serving glasses in the fridge until ready to serve to keep your ceviche nice and cold for your guests. Along with a few tortilla chips and a cold beer, your fiesta is sure to be a hit.
