Coconut Curry Ceviche - Lexi's Clean Kitchen

In February I attended an amazing blogger trip in San Francisco. It was a great group of bloggers and a great trip filled with AMAZING food. We ate a lot, as food bloggers would, and had such a fun time exploring the city. This Coconut Curry Ceviche is from a meal we had at E&O Kitchen and Bar. It was SO good that I knew I had to share it with you!

San Fran Food Blogger Trip

Where We Stayed:

We stayed at Hilton San Francisco Union Square. The location, the room, and the hospitality in the hotel is beyond fantastic. They go above and beyond, and for a large hotel, they do a fabulous job of making it feel small for the guests. Cityscape (on the 46th floor) had the absolute best views of the city, and had amazing cocktails and appetizers! 

What We Did:

Avital Walking Food Tour of Mission District: amazing foodie tour with fabulous stops in the Mission district.

Tour of Heath Ceramics: a tour of their San Fran studio!

Macaron workshop at Chantal Guillon: This was incredible. An amazing, fun experience and they even made custom macrons with our logos on them!

Edible Excursions Japantown Food Walking Tour: A great tour of Japan town with a ton of fabulous stops for any foodie!

Tour of the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market, and Ferry Building Marketplace: we walked around and met many of the vendors here. It is truly an amazing farmer’s market if you ever get the chance to go!

Where We Ate:

Dinner at E&O Kitchen & Bar

Dinner at Charlie Palmer’s Burritt Room + Tavern

Dinner at Urban Tavern

It was an amazing trip filled with fabulous food, good friends, and great things to do in the city!


Now… this recipe! A must-make!

  4. Add enough coconut milk to the mix to lightly coat all of the ingredients.
  5.  Add green curry paste ½ of a teaspoon at a time until it is to your liking. Add fish sauce, salt and pepper. Fold in the chopped cilantro.
  6. Toss to combine. Assemble and serve.

Chocolate Coconut Smoothie

I haven’t posted a smoothie in a while! Since I’ve been smoothie-ing-it-up (just ignore me) a lot lately, I thought I’d bring you a new favorite. Chocolate + Coconut = delicious. Nothing else needed to say. This smoothie gets extra creamy from the coconut/nut butter addition plus the chia seeds. Creamy chocolate shake with a hint of coconut flavor. I’m in.

    Chocolate Chip Coconut Macaroons [VIDEO]

    These Chocolate Chip Coconut Macaroons are the perfectly sweetened holiday cookie! They are so delicious, while also being gluten-free, dairy-free, and refined sugar free!

    Chocolate Chip Coconut Macaroons

    Passover is one week away. Coconut macaroons are a Passover staple, but for those of you who don’t celebrate; they are probably one of my favorite light cookies anytime of the year. Sweet, light, coconut-y, and of course for me, a touch of mini chocolate chips and dipped in chocolate. Perfect. And did I mention they are super easy to make?

    Passover is a time where we get together with family, have our traditional Jewish eats (Swedish meatballs, brisket, rolled cabbage, etc.), and reflect. On Passover you eat only unleavened bread and flourless desserts. Perfect for a grain-free/gluten-free house! Minus the matzo… I make a mean Matzo Lasagna!

    Chocolate Chip Coconut Macaroons

    I love Passover because like some of other holiday’s throughout the year, my nanny (grandma) comes in from Florida. Her famous recipes are the ones that line the table year after year. I have learned so much from her as a person, and as a chef! This week you’ll find a recreation of Nanny’s Swedish Meatballs that taste just like her traditional dish; one that is so special to me. This year Passover falls smack in the beginning of the week; sadly, heading back to New York isn’t an option, but I’ll go the weekend after to enjoy the time with my family!

    But back to the macaroons, shall we? We couldn’t keep our hands off of these babies!
