Super Bowl Ceviche
Today I have been doing some grocery shopping. I am getting all that I need to make a buffet of deliciousness tomorrow for Super Bowl 50! I am not necessarily a fan of either team, but I am a fan of DeMarcus Ware, so we will be rooting for the Denver Broncos! D-Ware had to leave the Dallas Cowboys in order to get to the Super Bowl, go figure. Anyways, my first dish to get the party started is a traditional party dish for me. The kids call it shrimp salad, but it will be known this year as Super Bowl Ceviche! I serve this with a side of blue tortilla chips, and it is a touchdown party food!
SUPER BOWL CEVICHE
1 generous pound of shrimp, I get the 41/50 and cut smaller
1/2 large sweet onion, diced
1 medium serrano pepper, seed and deveined, then diced
3 avocados, diced
6 roma tomatoes, diced
1 bunch of cilantro, chopped
3-4 Cups Clamato tomato juice
juice of 3 lemons
1-2 Tablespoons Tapatio hot sauce (more or less depending on your heat preference)
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon salt (more or less depending on taste)
Organic blue tortilla chips to serve the ceviche with
Chop the shrimp into smaller pieces. I like to try to have all the chunky ingredients about the same size. Squeeze the juice of the 3 lemons over the shrimp and refrigerate it.
Mince your onion and deveined serrano pepper into small pieces. Make these uniform so that they are not overwhelming in the ceviche.
Chop the cilantro, tomatoes, and avocados, again into small diced pieces, larger that the serrano and onion.
Add all of these ingredients to the shrimp bowl. Add seasonings:garlic powder, cumin, salt, Tapatio, and pepper. Add the Clamato juice. (I make my ceviche on the wet side. If you prefer a less runny ceviche, add the juice cup by cup to meet your preference.) Stir until all ingredients are mixed well.
Cover and refrigerate for at least an hour, but it is best served the day you make it. You can serve the ceviche in martini glasses, sundae glasses or small bowls. Garnish with sprigs of cilantro and a side of blue tortilla chips.
Enjoy my Super Bowl Ceviche and Go Broncos!!
