    I’m going to try this tonight! I was going to make shrimp and scallops anyway so I’ll try this and have it over salad! On my way to trader Joe’s! Thanks Kelly!

    • Hi Gwen, Great! You will love it! I hope it becomes a summertime favorite for you. Let me know how it goes tonight. Take care and have a great weekend! xo Kelly

  2. Margaret Rose says:

    wonderful, complete presentation! Really inspires me to try it. Thanks

    • Thank you Margaret Rose, I encourage you to give it a try. It’s a lifesaver in the summer when it’s too hot to cook! Thanks for tuning in today, xo Kelly

    Hi Kelly,

    Another wonderful recipe, and something I have been hesitant to make at home. I love the way you explain the process, and reasons behind. Thank you for taking the time!

    • Hello Elisa, it can feel daunting to do a recipe that calls for uncooked fish. But acidity-cooked fish yields wonderful results, it’s incredibly easy and it’s hard to mess up. Give it a try and be sure to let me know how it goes for you. Thank you so much for stopping by today! xo, Kelly

    • Heathet says:

      Looks wonderful. I have saved the recipe and will try it as soon as I can source some local shrimp.

      • Hello Heathet, I am sure you will enjoy this recipe. Feel free to try a different fish if you can’t find good shrimp. Bass and halibut are excellent alternatives! Have a great weekend! xo Kelly

    This recipe looks like a winner! I’ve only had crevice once, and loved it. Not sure if I trust myself to marinate it long enough to “cook”, so I might try your suggestion to poach it first, then marinate.
    In any case, the rest of the ingredients look yummy! Can’t wait to try this.

    • Hi Cheryl, if you cut the pieces of shrimp or fish to 1/2 inch size and marinate for 30 minutes, you can’t go wrong. Just be sure the fish is good quality and you should be fine! Thanks so much for tuning in today! Have a great weekend! xo Kelly

    I love the way you explain and “illustrate” techniques, food science and the recipes you choose. This column is wonderful and I look forward to thoroughly reading it each week.

    • Thank you, Frances! I really enjoy writing this column and it’s so much fun to think up what to share with all of you. Thanks for your support! xo Kelly

    Hi Kelly,
    This recipe look and sounds delicious!
    I can’t wait to give it a try.

    When you said serve it on a street taco with a bottle of Modelo beer, that really reminded me of my Caribbean trip.

    Thanks for sharing this recipe.

    • Hi Jo-Ann, isn’t it great to walk down those memory lanes? I would love to take another trip down to the Caribbean. It’s so beautiful! Thanks for reading today and dropping me a line 🙂 xo Kelly

  7. Laurie says:

    Will be making this next week. It looks delicious!

  8. Sylvia Espinoza says:

    Ceviche! Perfect! Healthy also as you said. Must enjoy some. Thank you for sharing your Tulum memories!~

    • It was a wonderful trip, Sylvia! Thank you for reading the post today, it’s always so nice to hear from you! Have a wonderful weekend! xo Kelly

    Hi, Nice to hear you have eaten octopus. One of the foods I eat here in Japan. We also lived 3 years in Georgia. Georgia has a special place in my heart.

    • Hi Cathy, Georgia is a special place, indeed. Where in Japan are you living? I have never been yet, but I minored in Japanese language in college and I sure miss being able to practice! I think the one thing Alex and I miss the most about living in San Francisco is the abundance of good Japanese food – especially sushi! Arigato! Take care and be well, xo Kelly

      • cathy ogi says:

        Can’t believe it, you minored in that? Why did you choose that? We live in Hamamatsu, Shizuoka. 500,000 people. I grew up in a town of 10,000. I love Japanese food, too! My pastor’s wife said I should be one that marries a Japanese—I did.

        • Haha! Yes, I have always been interested in Japan. My Godparents are Japanese and so from an early age I was exposed to Japanese culture and food. As far as Japanese Language as a minor…well that was a mistake because it was so hard. but once I got a couple years in, I felt I had to see it through. Hamamatsu is pretty, how nice to live in a coastal city! xo Kelly

    Well, I made the ceviche seafood salad just like you said, Kelly! It was fabulous! I served it over lettuce spinach and served it with tortillas. It “cooked” perfectly and was very fresh and delicious! My husband already had the modelo which top it off perfectly! Thank you for this delicious recipe, I will use it a lot, we enjoyed it here in Cincinnati!! Have a great weekend!

    • That’s so awesome Gwen! I am so happy you made the ceviche tonight! Your service sounds wonderful! Cheers to you and your husband and stay safe and healthy in Cincinnati! As an aside, every time I think of Cincinnati I get the WKRP theme song in my head, I grew up watching that show with my Dad, and I just have such fond memories of it. Take care, xo Kelly

  11. Carroll Niesen says:

    I have never tried making ceviche at home, but I love to eat it!! I’ll give a try. It looks fabulous

    • Hi Carroll, give this one a try, I am confident you will love it! It’s so easy and fail-proof. Let me know if you make and how you like it. Be well, xo Kelly

  12. Suzanne Smith says:

    Looks very light and refreshing. I’ve only made ceviche once, and I really liked it, but I like some of your suggestions for experimenting some, too. Cheers!

    It sure sounds like it could “take us away” without the actual air travel. Sigh…Have a great weekend, and thanks for the recipe!

  13. Paula says:

    I’m going to try this! When I first saw it I thought it was going to be a hard tedious recipe. But it’s not and sounds wonderful and very tasty. Love your ideas. Thanks.
