or


  • <LI class=recipe_ingredient_list>2 quarts peanut oil <LI class=recipe_ingredient_list>1 green plantain, peeled, cut in 1/2 crosswise, and very thinly sliced lengthwise <LI class=recipe_ingredient_list>1/4 cup kosher salt, plus more for seasoning <LI class=recipe_ingredient_list>1 pound medium shrimp, peeled and deveined <LI class=recipe_ingredient_list>2 lemons, juiced <LI class=recipe_ingredient_list>2 limes, juiced <LI class=recipe_ingredient_list>2 oranges, juiced <LI class=recipe_ingredient_list>1 cup cucumber, peeled, seeded and diced into 1/4-inch pieces <LI class=recipe_ingredient_list>1/2 cup red onion, finely chopped <LI class=recipe_ingredient_list>2 serrano chiles, seeded and finely chopped <LI class=recipe_ingredient_list>1 cup seeded and diced tomatoes <LI class=recipe_ingredient_list>1 Hass avocado, peeled, seeded, and chopped into 1/2-inch pieces <LI class=recipe_ingredient_list>1 tablespoon roughly chopped cilantro leaves, plus leaves for garnish
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
Set a large, 6-quart stockpot or Dutch oven over medium-high heat, and add the peanut oil. Heat the oil to 350 degrees F. Fry the plantains in two batches until golden brown and crispy, about 2 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel lined platter and season lightly with salt.

Place a 1-gallon stockpot over high heat and fill with 2 quarts of water. Season the water with 1/4 cup of salt and bring to a boil. Once the water comes to a boil, add the shrimp to the pot and immediately turn off the heat. Let the shrimp sit until just cooked through, about 3 minutes. Remove the shrimp from the water and place on a sheet pan to cool.

Once the shrimp are completely cooled, chop into 1/2-inch pieces and place in a medium-sized stainless steel bowl. Add the lemon, lime and orange juices and stir in the cucumber, red onion and chiles. Refrigerate for 1 hour.

Stir the tomato, avocado, chopped cilantro, and olive oil into the shrimp mixture. Allow it to sit at room temperature for 30 minutes before serving.

To serve, divide the ceviche between 6 chilled martini glasses, garnish with 3 fried plantain strips and cilantro leaves.

Yield: 6 appetizer portions

tuna, raw salmon, wahoo

cut into very thin slices against the grain or into cubes or a mix.

red onions
cilantro
caper berries
lime juice
Tony's
jalapenos
sea salt
olive oil
sarachi mayo
seaweed salad

cut peppers and onions into small cubes and mix with oil and lots of lime juice. Let sit for an hour.

cut fish into small serving sized pieces and set aside. roll tuna cubes in tony's very lightly for coating.

mix in a bit of cilantro with sirachi mayo

toss all fish in sauce and let sit 30 minutes for rare up to 45 minutes max.

Serve in martini glass, topped with a pinch of the seaweed salad, dollop of mayo and a caper berry.

Someone mentioned above fried tortillas for dipping or garnish. Do this. Even fried wonton wrappers are cool.

don't marinate fish for longer than 45 minutes. You may as well microwave it for 10 minutes if you're going to do this because the small pieces are cooked very quickly in the acidic lime. Texture goes to poo and all you taste is rubber marinated in lime.
