Agua Chile aka Ceviche

Recommended Posts

We have been wanting to try this for a while and since we didn’t have plans to leave the house Saturday Agua Chile it is. Very simple to make. This was just 1 pound of shrimp peeled and devained and cooked in freshly squeezed lime juice in the fridge for at least 30 minutes. After about ten minutes you can see the shrimp start to turn pink from the acid of the lime.

in a blender I blended the following 

1/2 cucumber 

A good handful of fresh cilantro 

1 garlic clove 

4 to 6 Serrano peppers 

1/4 cup of lime juice 

salt n pepper to taste

after the shrimp have been sitting in lime juice 30 min add about 1 chopped cucumber no seeds and about 1/2 of red onion thinly sliced then add your mix from the blender and salt n pepper to taste and let sit for another ten minutes in the fridge. When you serve it you can sprinkle some Tajin on it then enjoy with some tostadas or saltine crackers And a cold beer. I like spreading mayonnaise on the tostadas and put some Agua Chile on it. I know this dish is not for everyone but don’t knock it until you try it.

Oh, it's for me, all right.

 

Great presentation, too.

Looks great!  What did you rim your beer glass with?

Thanks for the compliment! The beer glass I rimmed with Chamoy and Tajin, it’s the same stuff they put on fruits and micheladas
