What do you think of when you think of an orange? I think of warm weather and a dose of vitamin C! In other words, I think of delicious colorful dishes and a cure for when I’m not feeling one-hundred percent. What a combination. Not only can you make some seriously epic citrus-y meals, but you can benefit from the amazing health benefits that this mega fruit offers!
When I am feeling under the weather one of my go to routines is to bust out my simple hand juicer and have some fresh squeezed OJ. I supplement with vitamin C daily, but there’s just something about fresh squeezed orange juice that makes me feel all happy and healthy.
Alternatively, when I am making a dish for company I go right to oranges for the bright color and perfect citrus flavor. Last month I taught a cooking class here in Boston and my Tropical Ceviche was a major hit. Generally speaking, ceviche uses raw seafood, but in this ceviche I used precooked shrimp. Not everyone at your dinner party may be up for raw, so I make it this way to accommodate all my guests. It is absolutely the perfect no cook appetizer to make when entertaining!
