A fresh treat for a great party buffet or just an afternoon snack!
Ceviche is found all over Mexico, Central America, and South America, originating from Peru. Belizean ceviche holds the same principles as other ceviche, being comprised of fresh raw fish cured in citrus juice, but has it’s own local twist. The best Belizean ceviche is made with fresh raw conch. These days it is getting pretty hard to find conch due to over fishing and seasonal harvesting. But do not fear, there is a substitution, when conch is lacking Belizeans sometimes use cooked chicken feet! Yeah, it sounds weird but Andrew Zimmerman has tried it!
However, today, for our recipe, we are going to share a traditional Belize style ceviche made with fresh raw shrimp. We will save both chicken feet and Conch for another time!
