Yes, that's right! The "made easy at home" part. The other part, not so much. Ceviche is neither fancy nor expensive. It's all about the quality of the ingredients. Ceviche is a seafood dish in which the seafood is cooked (technically called "cured") in citrus juices such as lemon and/or lime. Ceviche is the perfect dish on a hot summer day.

1 lb firm white ocean fish, cut into small strips
1/2 c lemon/lime juice - about 3 limes and 1 lemon
1 small red onion, thinly sliced
1 small tomato, de-seeded and cubed
1 avocado, cubed
1/2 c cilantro, chopped
1 habanero, de-seeded and cut into very tiny pieces - or use a milder pepper
1 tsp Maldon sea salt
4 appetizers

Gazpacho is an absolutely perfect appetizer (or light main course) on a hot summer day. Today, there are many "traditional" recipes out there. My recipe is not traditional...it's original and adjustable and works with ingredients we already have in our essential pantry. All we need are some fresh tomatoes and a cucumber from your garden or farmer's market. It's more of an idea of a recipe for you to make your own.

2 lbs tomatoes, cored and chopped
1 cucumber, peeled and chopped
1 red bell pepper, cored, deseeded, and chopped
1 shallot, peeled and chopped
1/2 c extra-virgin olive oil
1 Tbsp rice vinegar
3 slices stale baguette
1 tsp cumin
2 tsp salt, more to taste
4 appetizers (plus 2 Bloody Marys)
