One thing I love about vacation is that pace of everything is slowed. No set schedule to follow. Cooking is no exception, I love cooking on vacation and taking my time to try new recipes without the usual weeknight dinner rush. One of my favorite recipes I prepared last week in Michigan was a ceviche. It was so refreshing after a hot day on beach. Cold and cooling, it even looks like a beautiful summer day with all the colors.
I made the recipe with a frozen sashimi swordfish steak from Trader Joe’s. I am going to try it again soon with shrimp or scallops. The recipes call for a lot of chopping, but when you have the time to A great appetizer served with tortilla chips, pita chips or even cucumber slices. It would make a great main course served as fish tacos too.
