Tropical Ceviche
This one screams fresh and in season. We are spoiled here in Florida with our fresh seafood and tropical fruit and citrus locally grown and I fully take advantage of it call me spoiled. This recipe is very special to me as I actually caught the snappers and grew the pineapple so I decided to give a good old ceviche some Florida flair.
2 pounds mangrove snappers filets chopped small(any snappers will do)
1/3 cup chopped red onions
½ cup chopped tomatoes
1 Serrano chili pepper deseeded and chopped fine
1 teaspoon dried oregano
Pinch sea salt
4 limes juiced
¼ cup cilantro
½ cup pineapple
¼ cup green bell pepper
In a Pyrex glass dish mix together the first 7 ingredients cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate. After an hour mix once to coat all sides of fish cover and leave in refrigerator for 4 hours. Mix in cilantro pineapple and bell pepper before serving. Serves 6 large or 8 small portions.
