When I saw that this month’s Daring Cooks Challenge was Ceviche I was a bit daunted but I had a go anyhow. As Mae West said, “I’ll try anything once, twice if I like it, three times to make sure.” Luckily Bing provided a recipe and I rustled it up last night.
Hmm. All very strange. I bought River Cobbler because I liked the name and it was cheap. I chopped it into small chunks and marinaded it in lime juice for an hour and a half. Then I made Bing’s seafood sauce to mix it all up with. A weird concoction of olives, tomatoes, salsa piquante and MEXICAN ketchup. Now then, this is one of those ingredients that causes me to hunt high and low. I was amused to see that Mexican ketchup has its own Facebook page, but I couldn’t find any on the supermarket shelves of London. So I made do with a ketchup that had a bit of chili in – much milder than what I’d get in AUSTIN I am sure.
