Sangria & Ceviche

Looking for something totally awesome for you next get together?  I tried this great combo at a little get together with some girls. My friend, Robyn, gave me this ceviche recipe, so total credit goes to her for this Sangria and Ceviche theme. You are going to love it!

Even if you, like me, have never made ceviche before, you’ll find this super easy. Sure, you can make your own sangria, but why do that when there is this AMAZING organic brand called Eppa. To. Die. For.

Both the red and the white are excellent and all you have to do is add fruit to make it feel like you made it fresh!

Gather all your ceviche inmaking cevichegredients and chop the cilantro and tomatoes. The recipe calls for “de-seeding” the tomatoes. That basically means remove all the soft inner parts of the tomato, including the seeds. I did this by cutting the tomato open, gently squeezing it, and then scooping out the inside parts.

 

After de-seeding the deseeding tomatotomato, continue to cut the rest of the ingredients. This is shrimp ceviche, so I used a pound of frozen, cooked shrimp and let it thaw overnight. Cut each piece of shrimp into two or three pieces and add the rest of the ingredients.

Add the avocado last or right before serving since it tends to turn brown over time.

I zested the lime, but you can also use a grater. I zested a total of three limes.

When cutting the avocado, slice it up inside the skin first then scoop it out with a spoon.

 

And there you have it! Chill it for about an hour before serving. You can serve it with small tortillas or tortilla chips and a glass of sangria!
