I've loved ceviche ever since my mom used to make it for us from the fresh speckled trout or redfish we would catch off the pier in Rockport, Texas. I love the way she makes it and she's set the taste standard for me. I've posted about it before on my other site PaleoCurious and you can find it here.
Imagine my surprise when she made her world famous ceviche with canned tuna. Brilliant idea!
It's always available, tastes so fresh with all the other good ingredients, and packs a lot of nutrition as well.
hCanned Tuna Ceviche
1 can quality tuna (I love wild planet)
1 cup cherry tomatoes, sliced
1/2 to 1 jalapeño, chopped (more or less depending on how spicy you like it)
4 green onions, sliced into small rings up to the green part
juice of 1-2 whole limes
1/2 cup chopped cilantro or more to taste
1-2 T olive oil
salt to taste
This is the regular seafood ceviche that I make with fresh fish, shrimp, avocado and all the other goodness you see here! Click on the picture and you will be linked to the recipe at PaleoCurious!
I love me some homemade potato salad. It's one of the first things I heap on my plate whenever we are having some of my husband's famous brisket and chicken wings. But in an effort to cut back on carbs, I decided to try a lower carb version made with cauliflower, the miracle vegetable. Everything else in this recipe is the exact same as what I would add in traditional potato salad except potato and guilt!
1 large head cauliflower
3 hard boiled eggs, chopped
3 sticks of celery, diced
5 green onions, chopped including part of the green
1 large dill pickle, chopped
1 small jar pimentos
1/2 -2/3 cup paleo mayonnaise (depending on how creamy you like it)
*You can make your own or use Primal Kitchen Mayo
2 T. yellow mustard
1 t. celery seed
salt and pepper to taste
Cut cauliflower up into medium pieces and steam until al-dente but not completely falling apart. Let cool. Add chopped hard boiled eggs, diced celery, chopped green onions, dill pickle, pimentos, mayonnaise, mustard and celery seed. Mix to blend. Add salt and pepper to taste. Chill until ready to serve.
