Ceviche (pronounced “seh-BEE-chay”) is a popular traditional dish in South America, inspired by the Incas’ ancient method of preserving fish with the combination of seasonings and fruit juice. In addition to preserving the seafood, the touch of citrus created an irresistible flavor that created a perennial favorite.
Now, Chef Mac Arrington has updated the recipe and created Early Spring Lobster Ceviche -- a citrus and soy lobster ceviche that hints of spring but is hardy enough to hold up while there is still a bit of a chill in the air.
Ingredients include 1 lb fresh hand-picked Maine lobster meat, diced; ½ tsp smoked paprika; 1 clove garlic, minced; ½ tsp ginger powder; 3 Tbsp lemon juice; 1 tsp yuzu juice; 2 tsp soy sauce; 2 Tbsp cucumber, peeled, small diced; 1/ 2 red onion, shaved; 3 cherry tomatoes, quartered; ½ Tbsp cilantro, minced; 1 tsp olive oil; salt & fresh ground black pepper to taste; lettuce shooters or wraps.
To prepare, combine garlic, paprika, ginger powder, lemon juice, yuzu, soy and ½ tsp black pepper together in a bowl. Mix together using a whisk, and season with a little salt to balance. Toss in the lobster meat and let rest refrigerated for 20 minutes minimum to develop flavor.
When it is time to serve, remove the bowl from the fridge and fold in cilantro.
Taking into consideration the size of the lettuce leaves, portion out an adequate amount of lobster meat onto their tops. Toss tomatoes and cucumber in the remaining dressing. Add a tomato segment and a few pieces of cucumber to each lobster bite. Top with a few shaved red onion slices and a pinch of coarse salt. Enjoy!
