Creole LA

It’s summer 2016 and its been a hot one! The beaches are packed and cool summer dishes are rolling out.  Today, I’ve prepared an easy summer ceviche that can be eaten on the beach, the pool, or your local cookout.

Ceviche is a seafood preparation that cooked with local citrus. It adds flavorful bright flavors and satisfies the palate for a summer tasting. Since stone fruit  is in season, I thought I’d add grilled peaches to intensify the dish.

The dish is super simple and can be executed by beginner cooks. It consists of peaches, limes, shrimp, chilies, tomato, cucumbers, and cilantro. Allow it to marinade until the shrimp becomes opaque. Serve with your favorite tortilla chips! Enjoy!
