  • Ceviche!!! It's devine

    You'll cook it in the acid of the lime juice. Look up a recipe on line! I make this all the time

  • I hope you did not get that at Walmart. My mom got some of that the other day from Walmart and it was spoiled.

  • 4 pounds shrimp*
    1 pound scallops*
    *Use whatever seafood you have on hand and or white fish will work too
    6 large limes, juiced
    1 large lemon, juiced
    1 small white onion, chopped
    1 large tomato, coarsely chopped
    1 jalapeno pepper, chopped
    1 bunch cilantro
    1 tablespoon olive oil
    1 tablespoon kosher salt
    ground black pepper to taste

    In a large glass or ceramic bowl, gently toss the shrimp and scallops with the lime juice and lemon juice. Mix in onion, cucumber, tomato, jalapeno, serrano, cilantro, olive oil, salt, and pepper. Cover bowl, and chill ceviche 1 hour in the refrigerator, until shrimp and scallops are opaque.

    Thats a basic recipe. I just use a seafood mix or whatever I can get on sale!!! It's wonderful
