Ceviche de la Casa


Yields: 4 servings

The first condition to a wonderful ceviche is the freshness of the fish or shellfish. Lime is an essential ingredient for all ceviches. It not only gives the ceviche its unique flavor but the citrus juices cures the fish during preparation. There are countless variations of ceviche; the only limitations are the cook’s inspiration and the fish’s availability.


  • Combine bay scallops and shrimp in a bowl and set aside.
  • In a separate bowl mix all remaining ingredients. Pour lime mixture over scallop and shrimp. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours.
  • You may add other ingredients such as mangos, papayas, pineapples, almonds, and cucumbers to the ceviche. If you choose to do so, make sure the ingredients are chilled, toss with a little bit of olive oil and add to the ceviche after the fish has marinated.
