Rock Shrimp Ceviche
Ceviche made with fresh lime juice and a little zest makes an easy flavorful appetizer, bring on the margaritas and pull up a chair on the deck. We've had a break from the foul air and our red flag 🚩 fire season but that's forecast to change this weekend. The air is going to heat up and the wind is going to blow giving us our second red flag 🚩 warning this year. I don't think they're going to turn off our power but you never know, unfortunately. But, better safe than sorry. Cold food will be in order, ceviche is easy and I'm forecasting that it will be a perfect appetizer, no generator required-just ice, plan ahead.
