Football season starting next month! Now is as great a time as any to round up your friends for a chips and dip shrimp ceviche party!
Living in Santa Barbara we are very fortunate to have access to fresh fish year round. We love to make shrimp ceviche and this best ceviche recipe made with cod fish. This appetizer or main dish is simple and delicious to create and tastes best with our fresh local fish. If your fish has a ‘fishy' smell, that means it is no longer fresh. Good fish should not smell at all. If you are not a shrimp person, you can substitute it for halibut or salmon. To make this vegetarian and very inexpensive, substitute the shrimp for pinto beans and use 4 limes instead of 5! Grab some friends for a football or happy hour date and cheers to a mouthwatering offering that is sure to tantalize your taste buds.
