Ingredients:  
(NOTE: Shrimp & Scallops may also be added or just shrimp or just scallops alone).

4 Fillet Red Snapper (cut to bite size)
2-4 Tomatoes (I use 2, I don't want tomato ceviche)
1/2 bunch cilantro or to taste
1/4 or less white onions
4-5 fresh garlic cloves or to taste
1-2 fresh serrano peppers
1 whole avocado diced
1 whole cucumber diced (optional)
1-2 very soft/juicy lemon or lime (I use lemon)

Directions:
Directions:
Cut up all vegetables. Put seafood in bowl and loosen. Squeeze lemon juice, then add the onions and garlic. Squeeze more lemon juice and let sit for 5 minutes. Then add all ingredients mix around and put in fridge over night or at least a couple hours for the lemon juice to cook the fish and marinate all ingredient's together. Half an hour before serving, I will add a couple shakes of garlic salt. Caution: with the lemon juice because trial by error, I have used too much and it just killed the entire ceviche. You should never be stingy with the seafood you're using. You want seafood ceviche, not tomatoes, or any of the other ingredients.

Serve with tostadas or tortilla chips. I put Best Food Mayonnaise on the tostada and then the ceviche. Yummy!


Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
I have made this with Les and Twink and they use the prawns instead of baby shrimp. Yummy! But, I'm stingy and used baby shrimp. It's definitely not the same as prawns. Remember the lemon cooks the seafood. (Not sure about the prawns though,, I think we cooked the prawns first. Twink do you recall? - TWINK: No, we chopped it up and soaked it in the lemon/lime juice. It sure did taste better than the baby shrimp,

Original Ceviche Recipe was from Victor Acosta Familia and they used sardine's. I don't like sardines, and tried it with Red Snapper. TWINK: I remember Rick Rodriguez using Red Snapper and soaking it for a week before he would share it. MOA BETA...Mmmmm.....BROKE DA MOUT
