Recipe of the Month: Ceviche
“This is my family’s favorite camping dish,” said KOA kamper Maria Acebedo. “[It’s] very easy, just chop chop!”
Maria says that this recipe, which can feed up to 25 people, is great as a side dish, appetizer or main dish.
2 lbs cooked and peeled med shrimp (dice half)
2 lbs imitation crab, diced medium
3 cucumbers, peeled and diced medium*
3 tomatoes, diced
1 big bunch or 2 smaller bunches cilantro, rinsed and finely chopped
1 big onion, (2 if you like onion!) diced small
Fresh jalapenos, depending on your taste, diced small
2 cups juice from canned jalapenos
Fresh lemon or lime juice (be generous)
Mix everything in a large bowl and salt to taste. Serve on tostada shells, sprinkle with bottled hot sauce.
*Maria says, “Always cut off the ends of the cucumbers and rub them to the end of the cucumber to remove the sour taste. It really works!”
