I really adore eating ceviche so I decided I would try to make some. Ceviche is a dish that originated in south America, traditionally using raw fish. The addition of lemon or lime juice would serve to kind of cook the fish. I just cannot bring myself to use raw fish in a recipe, so I got some raw shrimp, cleaned, deveined, head and tails removed. I boiled them for a few minutes with a little seasoned salt, drained them and added the other ingredients. It is chilling in my fridge now and will be ready for a cool dinner on a hot summer night.
2 pounds cooked shrimp
Juice of two fresh lemons
Two diced tomatoes
One half diced green pepper
Four green onions
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
One half teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
Combine all ingredients allow to chill for a couple of hours. It’s good to serve with tortilla chips.
Looking in our cupboard.. I noticed that we have lots and I mean lots of pasta. A craving for pasta salad came over me. We had tuna/ mac salad earlier this month chicken/mac last month so … I threw a few things together and came up with a very good combo.
500 grams 17.6 oz. pasta (I used an organic Gemelli from Costco. The reason for so much pasta)
1 cup Italian dressing
1 Tbs McCormick’s salad supreme seasoning
1/2 can olives (black)
1/2 red,yellow and orange bell peppers
30 slices of dry italian salami
1/2 lb frozen california veggie medley (broccoli, cauliflower, carrots)
1 Tbs of garlic
Cook pasta as directed. drain,rinse and let cool
thaw the frozen medley
Chop all ingredients to your desired thickness.
mix italian dressing and salad seasoning in a bowl
toss all ingredients together and chill.
Serve alone or with lunch or dinner.. Or eat as an unconventional breakie. LOL 😀
