Traditional Belizean style ceviche made with Caribbean shrimps

Ingredients:

  • About half a pound of raw (uncooked) cleaned shrimp
  • 2 cups diced ripe tomatoes
  • 1 large onion diced
  • 1 bunch cilantro chopped
  • 1 habanero pepper minced
  • 5 good limes
  • 1 tsp salt (salt to taste)

Instructions:

  1. Rinse your shrimp under cool water. If you have tails on your shrimp get them off. Belizeans will rarely eat raw meats of any kind. Ceviche is an exception. You may cook your shrimp, if you do we recommend a flash boiling technique. Boil some water, and dump in the shrimp for 3-5 minutes, the second they turn pink pour out the water in strainer. OR just chop up the raw shrimp and let the acidity of the limes do the cooking. If you do make this recipe with conch… boiling your conch would be a damn shame. Conch is beautifully light and sweet tasting meat when raw. Cooked conch is better than no conch but the meat texture changes becoming chewy and tough if over cooked.
  2. After the shrimp is prepared chop it up. We prefer keeping the pieces large enough to be recognizable as shrimp/conch. But often the shrimp is cut very small so that it makes more servings. Shrimp can be expensive you decide.
  3. Once the shrimp is prepared you will essentially make a salsa with the other ingredients. Chop the tomatoes and onions into nice quarter inch chunks. Add lime juice and salt to taste. Mince 10 sprigs of cilantro, I like it cut fine. Add the shrimp! If you opted for raw shrimp let it soak in the lime juice for 20-30 minutes so that is can “cook” in the acidity of the lime juice.
  4. Serve with fried corn tortilla chips


Belizean Shrimp Ceviche

This recipe can be made an enjoyed in a matter of minutes. Ceviche is found all over Mexico, Central America, and South America. Apparently ceviche was originally from Peru. Belizean ceviche is similar but with a twist. Typical ceviches in Mexico are sweeter, and have bits of fish in them. Belizean ceviche at its best is made with raw conch. These days it is getting pretty hard to find conch due to a bit of over fishing and seasonal harvesting. Never fear, when conch is lacking Belizeans sometimes use cooked chicken feet. This recipe is for a traditional Belize style ceviche made with raw shrimp.

Ingredients:

  • About half a pound of raw (uncooked) cleaned shrimp
  • 2 cups diced ripe tomatoes
  • 1 large onion diced
  • 1 bunch cilantro chopped
  • 1 habanero pepper minced
  • 5 good limes
  • 1 tsp salt (salt to taste)

Mango Shrimp Ceviche

This recipe is a twist on the traditional Belize Shrimp or Belizean Conch Ceviche recipe. For an added twist Belize News Post recommends adding some cubed mangoes which will complement the acidity of the limes with a burst of sweetness. A mango that is ripe and sweet works best, but avoid over-ripe mangoes. The texture should be firm not sloppy.

Conch Ceviche

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound Fresh Conch meat; * Tenderized.
  • 1/2 cup Lime Juice; - Fresh squeezed
  • 1/2 cup Lemon Juice; - Fresh Squeezed
  • 1 medium habanero chile; - seeded and finely diced
  • 1 cup Onion; - finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup Cilantro; - finely chopped
  • 1 cup Tomato; - peeled, seeded, and chopped
  • 1/4 cup oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon Black pepper; - Fine ground

Instructions:

On a clean board pound the conch out flat. Dice the tenderized meat into 1/4 - 1/2 inch cubes or small, bite-sized slices. Put the cut up conch in a shallow, glass pan and cover with the lime and lemon juice. Marinate in the refrigerator for 2-3 hours. Mix in the finely diced Habanero and marinate another 2 hours. Drain the conch and place it in a mixing bowl.

Add the onion, cilantro, tomato, olive oil, salt, and black pepper and mix. Squeeze about 1/2 a lime''s worth of juice over the mixture.

NOTE: Take caution when handling fresh Habanero peppers. Plastic gloves are a great idea. Also, wash your hands thoroughly before touching your face, eyes or any other "tender" body parts. This stuff burns !!

Place in a bowl and serve with crisp tortilla chips and lime wedges.

NOTE: Soak the conch overnight to make it softer!
