Ceviche: A Classic

Ceviche: A Classic

ceviche

Now, I know a lot of people aren’t in for the idea of “raw” fish. Here’s where it changes. This recipe is called Ceviche, a latin dish made up of raw seafood ingredients that are cooked in the acid from different citrus juices. Here is a variation that I’m sure will please even the pickiest of eaters! I recommend using salmon or bass for this dish.

1 pound fish, small cubes
1 lemon, juiced
1 lime, juiced
1 orange, juiced
1 grapefruit, juiced
1 tbsp olive oil
½ bunch chives, chopped
½ jalapeno, small dice
½ red onion, small dice
½ cucumber, small dice
1 tomato, cleaned and diced

Mix together citrus juices, olive oil and chive. 
Add chopped vegetables to fish. 
20 minutes before serving, toss in the dressing. 
Let it refrigerate and serve ceviche immediately.

"Located just as you enter the resort, is our little red ice cream shack."

For years now, we’ve been huge supporters of the Farquhar’s brand ice cream. I can remember as a kid, that if a certain store didn’t offer it, we’d go elsewhere. Who can blame us, it’s delicious! In the summer months, we maintain a well stocked supply of different flavours, all with your option of sugar or waffle cones. We offer all the old favorites and some new temptations, such as Birthday Party Cake, Rocky Road, Black Cherry and Toasted S’mores. So if you catch yourself searching for that perfect triple scoop waffle cone delight, you’ll know where to find it.

See you in the Summer at the Ice Cream Shack!
