Cheater’s Ceviche in Endive Boats
This recipe delivers all the fresh, spicy, citrusy flavor of ceviche, but it’s so much quicker. Make the shrimp salad up to 30 minutes in advance and spoon it into the endive after your guests have arrived and gotten a drink.
1 medium-size shallot, minced
½ serrano chili, seeds and ribs removed, minced
¼ cup grapefruit juice
2 tablespoons lime juice
2 tablespoon olive oil
1 pound cooked shrimp, peeled, deveined, and cut into ½-inch pieces
1 avocado, cut into ½-inch cubes
¼ cup roughly chopped cilantro
3 bulbs endive, leaves separated
more lime and flaky salt to finish
1. Combine the shallot, serrano chili, grapefruit juice, lime juice, and olive oil in a medium-size mixing bowl. Add the shrimp, avocado, and cilantro and gently toss.
2. To serve, place a spoonful of the shrimp and avocado salad into each endive leaf. To finish, squeeze more lime juice over the endive boats and sprinkle some flaky salt on top.
