Seems like all my entries lately have been about food; but I just couldn’t resist this one – lobster ceviche.

One nibble of this delicious ceviche and I was right back on a warm beach, sunglasses on, lathered in sunscreen, soaking up the warm rays, listening to the ocean waves, sipping on a Corona and stuffing my grill with this fresh and tangy appetizer.

Fattie made this for me last night.

Lobster Ceviche

  • 1 whole lobster – boiled, meat removed, cubed
  • 2 avocados, cubed
  • 1 small mango, cubed
  • 3 limes, juiced
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 8 ounces cherry tomatoes, cubed
  • Half of chili pepper, seeded & diced
  • Half of small red onion,diced
  • 1 teaspoon of sugar
  • Handful of cilantro, finely chopped
  • Smaller handful of parsley, finely chopped
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
  • Preparation

    1. Put live lobster in freezer for 30 minutes to allow “lobster to fall asleep”. Blanch lobster in boiling water for 6 minutes. Remove from heat. Put lobster on ice bath. Once cool, remove meat and cut lobster into small pieces. (tip: ask your fish monger to cook the lobster ahead of time if you are skweemish or this step bothers you)
    2. Toss all ingredients together in large bowl, cover with cling film, and allow to marinate in fridge for about an hour. (tip: since the lobster is already cooked, you can actually eat this straight away but it is a bit tastier when it sits among the juices for awhile. It can also be prepared several hours prior to serving).
    3. Drain some liquid & serve in martini glasses.
    4. Invite me over.
