Ceviche
Suggested Wine Pairing: Ceja Carneros Chardonnay and Ceja Carneros Pinot Noir Ceviche is a raw seafood dish that has been "cooked" in citrus (usually lime) juice. This citrus marinade firms up the fish and gives it a solid coloration. These details make it a very different dish from raw sushi. Many people feel safer eating ceviche, as its citrus preparation is believed to kill any diseases carried by fish. Ceviche recipes vary widely depending on the seafood and accessories available in the area. Some ceviches are packed with full-bodied octopus and dogfish; others are lighter with the more delicate scallops and baby shrimp. The seafood is often paired with flavorful chiles and fresh herbs. The long marinade period blends the tastes together. Ceviche is best made with extremely fresh fish. However, if you cannot access the best fresh fish, choose fresh frozen seafood for your ceviche.

Chunky Guacamole with Serrano Peppers
Among all the dishes I make, this one is definitely a favorite. This is why the batch is so big — no one can stop eating it! I have a few tricks that give my guacamole great flavor and texture. First and most important, I use lemon, not lime, juice. Lemon has a little sweetness that brings out all the other flavors. Also key is that I never skimp on the lemon or the kosher salt. I sometimes laugh that I basically make a salty lemonade for the avocado and other ingredients to swim in — trust me, it makes all the difference! Serrano peppers give it a great kick, much better than jalapeños. And finally, never stir as you add each ingredient to the bowl or the guacamole will become too watery. This is especially beautiful served in a dish that shows off the guacamole’s green, white, and red, such as a molcajete — a Mexican mortar and pestle — or a bright and fun serving bowl. Serve with tortilla chips for an appetizer or on top of steak. Click here to see the Best and Worst Celebrity Cookbooks story.
