Ceviche is not spontaneous in the least, this is a dish you have to think about and prepare well in advance. I like this refreshing summer dish year 'round but it is especially good in the morning as a fresh and exciting breakfast. I know this may not be for everyone and believe me when I tell you the flavors are bold but it is so clean tasting.
1 pound of cleaned shrimp
1/2 pound bay scallops
1 large grouper filet (any fish will do)
1 pound squid tentacles (you can use the whole squid I just like how the tentacles look)
6 large limes squeezed for the juice
1 large lemon juiced
1 large bunch of cilantro chopped
3 large scallions chopped
2 large anaheim chiles chopped (any spicy chile will do)
half of a large onion chopped
2 large tomatoes chopped
salt and pepper
Combine everything in a large bowl or plastic covered container and let it sit 12 hours or so in the refrigerator. After you can wait no more serve on crackers, corn chips or fried crispy corn tortillas, you can use additional hot sauce if you like, I like the brand "Valentina" for something like this.
Crispy corn tortilla, perfectly seasoned seafood = delight.
