Tilapia and Shrimp Ceviche

This Central and South American delight is really delicious and quick to make. I always order it at restaurants but recently just made it myself for the first time, then made it several more times after that.

Tilapia filets (I used the 6-pack of frozen filets)
shrimp (I used about half a pack of frozen shrimp)
juice of 2 limes
juice of 1 lemon
1 red bell pepper
1 red onion
chopped green onions
1/4-1/2 bunch chopped cilantro
black pepper
1/4-1/2 hot pepper or some dried red pepper flakes

If your seafood is frozen, defrost first. Chop up all seafood and place into large bowl. Squeeze the juice of 2 limes and 1 lemon over the fish and mix to coat. Then chop up all vegetables and add in. Add in all spices. Stir, cover and let sit in refrigerator for about 15-20 minutes until fish is white or opaque. Serve and enjoy.

Wow, that looks great! I'm not a big fan of tilapia, but I might have to try this out. I LOVE shrimp! =)

You can substitute the tilapia with any type of fish you like (maybe salmon) or just do all shrimp! :)

I made it with chopped white peaches added in for a peach cooking contest at work today! The peach added a nice sweet touch to it!
