Ceviche is essentially fish in a zingy citrus marinade. The citrus 'cooks' the fish and is best served with coriander and a hint of chilli. Swap the recipe's ingredients for tomato, avocado or anything in the fridge, but ensure the plate is served cold.

INGREDIENTS

  • 300g Defrosted prawns’ tails removed
  • ¼ cucumber
  • ¼ rock melon
  • ½ red onion
  • ¼ melon
  • 1 handful of fresh Coriander
  • ½ red chilli
  • 1 orange
  • 1 large lemon
  • Salt & pepper
  • Olive oil
  • 125g corn chips

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Slice the cucumber down the middle and, using a spoon, remove the seeds. Dice the cucumber into cubes.
  2. Dice the onion and chop the coriander
  3. Remove the melon from the skin and slice it into thin slices.
  4. Slice the chilli into thin slices, removing the seeds.
  5. Typically, ceviche is made with raw fresh fish cooked in citrus juice, but as there can often be risks with shellfish, it's best to cook the prawns slightly before adding the citrus.
  6. Fill a large pot with water and a pinch of salt. Blanch the prawns for 2 minutes, remove them from the water, and place them into cold water.
  7. Drain the prawns. Cut the prawns into small pieces. In a bowl add the orange juice and lemon juice, and mix gently with a spoon. Add the cucumber, rock melon, onion, coriander, chilli, and olive oil mix well. Season with salt and pepper. Place the mixture into the fridge to marinate for 30-60 minutes.
  8. Remove from the fridge and taste again for seasoning if salt is required.  Serve with corn chips.
