What makes this Green Ceviche?
Obvious answer: the ingredients are green in color... avocados, limes, olives, tomatillos, jalapenos,
Not obvious answer: they are all locally grown and organic
Last Sunday I had the pleasure of preparing my Green Ceviche recipe for a distinguished panel of judges at Primal Alchemy's Kitchen in Long Beach. It was my first time cooking outside my own kitchen or competing with other home cooks. As I reflect on it, I'm thinking about how these three points can apply to life outside the kitchen.
Start With the Best Ingredients
A trip to the Alamitos Marina Market in Long Beach (which is much larger than I expected) features all organic fruits and veggies being grown from Fillmore to Riverside and around Orange County. It's not easy to navigate a new market but there are some old friends selling there too like Maggie's Farms (thanks for the cilantro). Green Ceviche ingredients to serve six cost less than $20 and there are a lot of jalapenos and tomatillos left over for next time.
