ceviche

Ingredients:

1 pound “sashimi-quality” skinless meaty ocean fish fillet
(halibut, snapper and bass are great choices),
cut into 1/2-inch cubes or 1/4 bite size slices

1 1/2 cups fresh lime juice
1 small white onion, chopped into 1/4-inch pieces
(walla walla sweet if you can)
Hot green chiles to taste (2 serranos or 1 jalapeño), stemmed, seeded, and minced
1/4 cup fresh red pepper cut into 1/4 by 1 inch matchsticks
1/4 small jicama, peeled and chopped into 1/4-inch pieces (optional)
1/4 cup (loosely packed) chopped fresh cilantro (thick bottom stems cut off)
2 tbsp olive oil, preferably extra virgin
Sea Salt
1 tsp honey

Method:

Combine lime juice, onion, hot pepper and honey in a glass or metal bowl.
Add in the fish and mix carefully making sure all pieces are coated with liquid. Fish should be loosely floating. Cover and refrigerate. “Cook” the fish in the liquid for anywhere between 1 and 6 hours depending on desired consistency. 1 hour for Medium Rare, 6 hours for well done.
Drain the fish reserving a small amount of the liquid for serving (about a half cup). The rest of the liquid can be discarded. You can hold the fish in refrigeration at this point for up to two days
To serve add the reserved liquid back to your fish. Add red pepper, jicama, and cilantro, drizzle with olive oil, season with salt and lightly toss together.
Serve over crisp green salad or in lettuce cups.

Mediterranean Roasted Chicken Salad Recipe

10-Day Blood Sugar Support Approved

Roasted Chicken Salad

Ingredients:

1 Whole Roast Chicken (3-5 lb)
1/3 cup Home made Mayonnaise
1 tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
2 tbsp Stone Ground Mustard or Dijon
Sea Salt (to taste)
Fresh Ground Black Pepper (to taste)
1/4 cup halved olives (kalamata)
1 tbsp olive brine
1 tbsp capers (rinsed)
1/3 cup diced Roasted Red Pepper
1/4 cup diced green onion (optional)
3 sprigs fresh minced thyme
1 tbsp minced fresh parsley
1 tbsp minced fresh oregano or marjoram

Method:

Pick meat from chicken being careful to remove any sinews. If the skin is crispy I like to add a little of it to the mix. Large dice the meat and set aside.
In a medium size mixing bowl combine mayonnaise, vinegar, mustard, olives, olive brine and capers. Add the chicken and toss to coat in the dressing. Season with salt and pepper to personal taste.
Fold in roasted red pepper, green onion, and any herbs you are using. Adjust seasoning to taste and enjoy!
If you like a little spice try adding 2 tsp of smoked paprika and 3/4 tsp cayenne or other ground hot pepper.

Serving suggestions:

Great accompanied with your choice of fresh green salad, steamed vegetables, or braised greens (kale, mustard, chard)
