Seafood Ceviche

This is a simple dish that is just loaded with protein. It is very popular in South America, where it is made with raw fish. We'll pass on that and go the cooked route, thank you. Alaskan king crab meat is already cooked when you buy can buy the shrimp already you only need to grill or broil a couple of small lobster tails for the "cooking" portion of this recipe. (Buy two lobster tails. Leave them intact and simply slice them in half lengthwise. Grill or broil them in the shell and pull out the meat after the tails have cooled.) This recipe is from Cooking Enthusiast (, one of my favorite shops for unique cooking items. Serves 4.

1/2 lb. cooked large shrimp, peeled and deveined
1/2 lb. cooked lobster meat, cut into bite-sized pieces
1/2 lb. cooked crab meat, cut into bite-sized pieces
3/4 cup fesh lime juice
3/4 cup lemon juice
3/4 cup finely chopped red onion
1 Serrano chile, ribs and seeds removed, minced
1/2 cup chopped cilantro
1 cucumber , peeled and diced into 1/2-inch pieces
1 avocado, peeled, seed removed, cut into 1/2-inch chunks

  1. Cut each piece of shrimp in half. Place shrimp, crab and lobster in a glass or ceramic bowl. Mix in lime and lemon juice. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
