Farmer’s Market Hot and Lucky #3 Ceviche


Orange Roughy, Lump Crab, and Shrimp

What’s Ceviche ?

Marinade Time: At least 3 hours

Prep Time: about 45 min, find a helper, a nice mexican beer, and some tunes – it will go faster.

Serves: ALOT 🙂


  • 1/2 lb Wild Roughy
  • 8oz Wild Lump Crab Meat
  • 1lb Wild Shrimp
  • 5 Medium Tomatoes, diced
  • 1/2 Purple Onion, diced
  • 1 Small White Onion
  • 15 Limes, juiced (we used an electric orange juicer).
  • 1 Fresh Banana Pepper, diced
  • 1 Jalapeno, diced
  • 1 Small Thai Chili
  • 1 Small mystery orange pepper from farmers market (looked like a orange thai chili, but not very spicy).
  • 1/4 to 1/2 a bunch of cilantro
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Crackers (I like Fat-Free Saltines)


  1. Juice limes into a large bowl
  2. Peel Shrimp
  3. Cut up fish, shrimp, and crab into similar sized pieces and add to bowl of lime juice
  4. Cut all produce in similar sizes (except peppers, they should be cut very small) and stir into ceviche mixture.
  5. Roughly cut cilantro and combine into ceviche
  6. Let the lime juice “cook” the raw seafood for a few hours or until shrimp is nice and pink.
  7. Salt and pepper to taste
  8. Serve on crackers, like Saltines

We got all the produce for this recipe at the local farmer’s market off Barton Springs this morning, the fresh onions and tomatoes will really make this dish pop.  It’s amazing how much more potent farmer’s market onions are, they are so fresh even Ginger’s eyes were watering…

This is a great party dish and is LOW FAT and LOW CARB.


About zestybeandog

I live in Austin with my wonderful husband, dog Ginger, and cat Skiddy. We are a pretty laid back group (except for Ginger). When I'm not teaching yoga, personal training, or dog walking... I'm in the kitchen. I'm always experimenting with new ingredients and thinking of ways to prepare fresh foods in a unique way. I hope to update the blog 4-5 times a week. I've had several friends, family, and clients inquire about my recipes so here it goes. What to expect: Healthy recipes that are good for you, some classics (that have been spruced up), some not so healthy recipes (still made with quality ingredients that can be enjoyed in moderation), and beer and wine parings/reviews! I hope you enjoy, cheers!
