• Puerto Vallarta Fishing Ceviche Recipe

    The fishing remains strong here in Puerto Vallarta fishing.

    Capt. Pete has had many requests for the ceviche recipe we make on the boat DOS AMIGOSDOS AMIGOS

    Here’s what ya need to get started for 6 people :

    1. 1 lb. of white fish: here are a few that can be used – dorados ( AKA mahi- mahi)  red snapper, Spanish mackerel,halibut, flounder, or a combination of 1/2 lb white fish and 1/2 lb of shrimp.

    2. 15 limes or  lemons.  I always use limes

    3.  cilantro          use the whole bunch ( chopped fine )

    4. 6 tomatos ( med) deseeded

    5.  1 red bell pepper, 1 green bell pepper, 1 yellow bell pepper, 1 orange bell pepper  chopped/deseeded

    6. 1 large onion  white, red, yellow what ever flavor you like

    7. 1  large carrot  grated

    8. fresh ground pepper

    9. fresh ground sea salt

    10. Maggi cocktail sauce or soy sauce

    11. olive oil

    12. couple of peppers your choice  chopped depending on hot you like it !!! JALAPENOS ARE GOOD

    13. tostados

    14. avocados 2 large

    15. 2 large plastic bowls with tops

    16. large cutting board

    17. couple of beers for drinking while you make the ceviche

    step 1 chop fish or shrimp in small pieces nothing larger that 1/4 inch

    this will help the limes cook the fish/shrimp faster

    step 2 put in plastic bowl and squeeze  limes over all the fish, just enough to cover the fish/shrimp

    step 3 put in refrigerator , then should be stirred several times over the next 45 min while preparing

    the vegetables

    step 4.  chop all the vegetables into 1/4 inch pieces

    step 5  put all vegetables into the second plastic bowl

    step 6 check your fish that has been in the refrigerator for 45 min, by now the fish/shrimp should have changed color, they should be a white color now.  If not leave them in the refrigerator a few more min.  ( don’t use to many limes- this will make your ceviche taste like limes )

    step 7 mix the shrimp/fish and vegetables in large bowl , add fresh ground salt and fresh ground pepper

    STEP 8  put in 2 table spoons of soy sauce or maggi cocktail sauce and mix

    step 9  you can add 2 table spoons of olive oil as well ( optional )

    step 10 put in refrigerator for 15 min and serve on tostado with wedge of avocado

    step 11 add your favorite store bought hot sauce on top of tostado and serve

    This is the one we like to make on the boat DOS AMIGOS for our clients

    ENJOY
