Nothing screams summer (food wise) more to me than a fresh ceviche. If you don’t know what ceviche is, it’s a light refreshing dish of fish (or seafood) marinated in citrus juice and is perfect for summer months. It’s light and bright tasting. An added bonus is that it requires absolutely no heat to cook, so no worrying about ovens or stove tops. All you need is your fridge!
On another bonus, it’s actually really easy to prepare. However, if you’re making this at home, there are definitely a few things to keep in mind. Be sure to always use the freshest fish possible. Also, it’s all about the ‘marinating process’ – which is a bit like pickling when you think about it.
With a month and a half before Christmas, it seems to be a ‘thing’ to go on a month long diet. That being said, it fascinates me how much those around you influence your actions. One of my coworkers has recently embarked on a “whole 30” way of eating – ie she is determined to eat clean until the end of the month. What does that mean? Only whole foods without grains, wheat, dairy… It made me start thinking about my personal eating habits and what I should be eating. I came home today craving something a little healthier.
The bus ride home lead me to a major Pinterest search for inspiration. I looked up ‘Clean Eating’ and came up with a dozen recipes that looked good and healthy. From that, I came across a variation of these delicious bites. I had everything I needed in my kitchen and it was easy to make. I made a few adjustments and came up with my personal take on ‘Tuna Cakes/Patties’.
