Oh man! Guys this is everything I wanted and more, SO yummy!
I love ceviche. Yes, love. Fish, shrimp, crab, mixed…I love ’em all. There was a special for the chopped and cooked octopus so I made my own from scratch so I know exactly what I was putting in it.
- Seafood – your personal favorite (Diced)
- Tomato – I like roma (Diced)
- Red Onion (Diced)
- Lime Juice
- Jalapeno or Serrano peppers – depending on how spicy you want it (Minced)
- Cilantro (chopped)
- Crushed sea salt – to taste
I didn’t put quantities up there because I think it’s great to create the right ratio that works for you. But in case you want to know, here’s what I did..
- 1.5 pounds of octopus
- 6 medium roma tomatoes
- 0.5 medium red onion
- Juice of 1 lime
- 3 Jalapeños
- 0.5 a bunch of cilantro
- 2 tsp sea salt
Combine all the ingredients into a large bowl and let chill for at least an hour. I got a great suggestion from a coworker to blend the peppers and lime juice before mixing that way the spice is evenly distributed. Will definitely have to try it next time! This would have been enough to serve a small dinner party. Voila!
