For the past week or two I’ve been seriously craving watermelon. Then, all of a sudden I got this idea to combine two of my favorite loves, watermelon salad and shrimp ceviche. I was initially really hesitant to do this, but it was soooo worth the risk.
Yesterday I finally found a ceviche worthy watermelon. Later, at the farmer’s market, I discovered something that would really set this plan off – peach balsamic vinegar from The Olive Press.
I… AM… HOOKED.
I could drink this stuff straight! Anyway, this recipe comes just in time to add to a fabulous summer soiree. Enjoy!
Juice of 2 limes
1 Tbsp. peach balsamic vinegar
1/4 of a medium red onion, thinly sliced
1 serrano pepper, finely minced
20 or so medium steamed shrimp, peeled
2 cups watermelon chunks
approx 10 mint leaves, finely chopped
sprinkle of coarse salt
Place lime juice, vinegar, onion, pepper, and shrimp in a dish. Cover and let marinate about 5 minutes. Mix in remaining ingredients and serve.
