Fiery Frutas del Mar Ceviche

Serves 2 to 4

This lively ceviche's name literally means "fruits of the sea." Pair with a glass of crisp white wine. For a milder dish, reduce the amount of hot peppers as desired.

Ingredients: 
  • 1 pound mixed seafood (calamari, shrimp and clams), fresh or precooked frozen, thawed
  • 2/3 cup fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced red onion
  • 2 pickled jalapeño peppers, rinsed, seeded, cut into strips
  • 1 scotch bonnet or habanero pepper, most seeds removed, cut into very tiny strips
  • 1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • Fresh cilantro sprigs

Method: 

Cut seafood into bite-sized pieces. If raw, blanch calamari and shrimp 1 to 2 minutes in a large pot of boiling, salted water. Steam clams until shells have opened and then remove from shells.

Place prepared seafood in a shallow dish with lime juice, onion, jalapeños, scotch bonnet pepper, red bell pepper, salt and pepper. Combine well and refrigerate 3 to 4 hours, stirring once or twice. Garnish with cilantro.

Note: Be very careful when handling scotch bonnet and habanero peppers. Their seeds and ribs can leave spicy capsaicin on your hands. To avoid any problems, wear thin, rubber gloves when chopping the peppers and make sure to wash your hands well afterwards.
