One of the things you plan ahead when taking a vacation is to visit as many restaurants as possible to try the different kinds of dishes of the place to visit. Here in Rocky Point is a must to try out the many different sea food places around town, even though on their menus you can see most of them offer the same dishes you must remember that not everyone has the same style or taste when cooking.
In Rocky Point one of the main rental services is for condo resorts, where you can find a full equipped kitchen in every unit, that gives you the advantage to cook you own meals and that way save a lot of money instead of going out every day of your vacation. One of the main sea food item to try out in Rocky Point is shrimp, and you can prepare them in many ways but one of them and one of the most popular is to make shrimp ceviche (do not mistake it with shrimp cocktail) if you do not know how to make it you can ask anyone at the fish market at El Malecon and you will be able to get it.
Next I will give you the one shrimp ceviche recipe that my family has been making for years (even decades).
-2 pounds of shrimp
-3 medium tomatoes
-2 red onions
-4 celery stalks
-1/4 cup of chopped cilantro
-1/2 litter of clamato juice
Dice the shrimp and onions and put them together in a bowl, squeeze the lemons and pour the juice on the shrimp and onion as well as two tablespoons of the white vinegar mix it and let it sit for about an hour or until shrimp gets “cooked” (the meat will take a white-ish color”. Dice the tomato and the celery and put them together in another bowl adding the ¼ cup of chopped cilantro. Once the shrimp is ready drain the lemon and vinegar mix. Mix the shrimp with the tomatoes, celery and cilantro and pour the clamato juice, give it a stir and listo!
You can either put the ceviche on a baked or fried corn tortilla or on saltine crackers, also as a garnish put some avocado on it and a little bit of hot sauce and of course don’t forget to get some cold beers to completely enjoy this dish from the balcony of your condo admiring the wonderful view of the Sea of Cortes.
If you decide to try it out and make it let us know or post a picture of it.
