Ceviche

We delivered more Phickles to The Healthy Gourmet last week. It’s always fun to take a tour of that store when we do! They’re always sampling things in there. I noticed some almond butter on their sampling table but I stayed clear of it to save my appetite since my husband had his eyes on the Rock Fish. I knew I was in for a yummy supper!
So…yes, we purchased a big piece of Rock Fish from the freezer and made ceviche three ways!

We prepared all the herbs and veggies first. We had cilantro, jalapenos, chives, garlic cloves, Phickles Hotties (pickled jalapenos,) and sweet 100 cherry tomatoes. Luckily, our kitchen garden was full of everything but the garlic and Phickles…but we always have ’em since garlic goes into every pickle jar we make …and our fridge is never empty of Hotties!

We diced 4-5 oz of the Rock Fish.

Then we added 1 Tbsp Cilantro, 1 Tbsp Hotties, 1 tsp Chives, 1 tsp minced garlic, 2 Tbsp Cherry Tomatoes, Juice of 1 lemon, Juice of 1 lime, & 1 tsp black pepper.

We made ceviche three ways… one way was extra spicy with fresh jalapeno and one with a spicy salt we scored during our visit to the Fancy Food Show in D.C.
All you gotta do is mix it all together and let it sit in the fridge for 20-30 minutes and it’s ready to eat. Ceviche done this way makes a nice dip with chips.

Lots of different white fishes can be used in ceviche. We enjoyed Scallop Ceviche at Square One Fish Co. in Athens during Sunday brunch recently. It was prepared with grapefruit instead of the lemon and lime like we used. During our #PhunVenture …we LOVED the Shrimp ceviche at Louis-Louis in South Walton County Florida. Both are phickley spots doing food perfectly! I love knowing about the connection the owners of The Healthy Gourmet has with the fish they sell. They have a fisherman friend in Alaska who flash-freezes fish and ships it straight to Dave and Ann Wells at The Healthy Gourmet. …and from the taste of their fish…I know that is true! So yummy…

Normally, we have ceviche as a small tapa …but this night…we made enough for a whole meal. It’s been HOT in Athens, Georgia ….so a cool, refreshing meal like this is something we crave lately.

20120718-193008.jpg
After dinner… there were tasty drippings left! So…..

20120718-194210.jpg
We made a night cap! ….a ‘Phickled Ceviche-Tini!’

20120718-194337.jpg
We garnished it with a little cherry tomato ….and drank up.
Get creative with your food, PHriends! We all have lots more available to us than we sometimes realize. …and if you’re in Athens, check out the little gourmet food store on Baxter Street! The Healthy Gourmet is packed with everything you need to impress the most superior palate and is surely every foodie’s dream store. Don’t even get me started on the salts! …or the wine! …or the vinegars and Georgia Olive Oil. And yes, ….it’s a phickley spot!
For all of you that frequently get your Phickles Phix at The Healthy Gourmet… thanks for making it possible for us to keep stocking their shelves. We love ya!
