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!

Scenes from the trip:

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!

Easy Shrimp Ceviche Recipe

Last month I taught a cooking class here in Boston and this Tropical Shrimp 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! It also is put together in under 15 minutes and in one bowl! Trust me, you’re going to love this!

shrimp ceviche with oranges and mango

I love the citrus in this dish! 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.
