Shrimp And Watermelon Ceviche~
The other night..I tuned into Iron Chef America..and one of the talented chefs made a watermelon shrimp ceviche..
I googled the next day and this one caught my eye..
"Shrimp watermelon Ceviche
A healthy, fresh, colorful salad for any summer day!"(Quote:)
I sliced my watermelon .. ap 3/8 inch thick and cut into rounds that would fit in the bottom of my little tray/ ind.dishes.. so that the shrimp and mix could sit atop..
The rest..I followed the recipe..
1 navel orange, peeled
½ cup fresh orange juice
¼ cup fresh lime juice
½ cup diced watermelon
1 teaspoon grated peeled fresh ginger
½ cup finely diced red onion
½ teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 Tablespoon sea salt
1 pound large shrimp (21 to 25 per pound) peeled and deveined
¼ cup of chopped cilantro
lime wedges for serving
Cut orange into segments and chop enough pieces to measure ¼ cup. Stir together orange, orange juice, lime juice, watermelon, ginger, onion, red pepper flakes and salt in a large bowl. Set aside. Steam shrimp until just pink and rince in cold water to stop cooking. Add shrimp and cilantro to watermelon mixture and toss to combine. Cover and let marinate at least 1 hour. Serve with lime wedges.
It's from Taste Book~
I had never seen that site..I will have to investigate:)
It was just so refreshing and delicious..
It was a Dragonfly day today and we brought them over to our neighbour w/ some white wine to share on her new back deck~
I would definitely make this again and again~I know it's not a true ceviche.. but I liked the steamed shrimp~
