As a lot of you know I’m a huge fan of Mexican food, so much so that I can literally eat it everyday!
Infact, as they say, love is kinda crazy 😉 I even turned Mr. into a Mexican food lover (YaaaY).
And this Mexican Crab Ceviche Recipe is the first ceviche recipe that I learned to make after an impromptu trip to San Diego.
We literally had some really exciting and flavorful Mexican food n drinks in that trip and Ceviche was the highlight as we ate it for the first time (almost 8-9yrs back).
And right after that trip, I made this ‘Mexican Crab Ceviche’ recipe for a wine party at home and it was such a Hit.
Since, then I tweaked the recipe a little here or there, just to make sure that it’s perfected to everyone’s taste and has easy ingredients.
Also, I feel Ceviche is a very forgiving recipe if you have fresh seafood.
All you do is quickly chop all the other fresh ingredients and mix everything together.
Now, before you try this Mexican Crab Ceviche Recipe or any other Ceviche, always remember these point:
You NEED to have fresh seafood (fish/crab/shrimp/octopus, etc).
Always use FRESH Lime/Lemon Juice (Please don’t use bottled or old juice as it makes the ceviche taste bitter.
Chop ALL the Ingredients in same or similar size (it’s easier to eat that way).
Ceviche Taste BEST when served FRESH (all that lemon juice starts cooking the seafood, so you lose the freshness).
Now, I’m using frozen crab for this recipe, but you can use either fresh or frozen, whichever is easily available to you.
Once the Ceviche is made, just keep them in the fridge before you serve, although I highly recommend serving it immediately once made.
If you are making it for a party and NEED to keep it in the fridge for 2-3 hours before serving.
Then I would suggest that you keep the seafood separate from other ingredients.
Just mix the seafood just before serving to retain that Freshness that Ceviche is known for.
