Grilled Vegetables

Grilling vegetables is not about having special equipment. The best vegetables to grill are the ones that are ripe in your garden or fresh at the market.

2 bell peppers ( remove core and seeds, quarter )
1 large red onion ( peel and quarter )
1 medium eggplant ( cut lengthwise in half-inch slices or rounds )
1 medium zucchini ( cut lengthwise in half-inch slices or rounds )
1/2 lb asparagus ( cut off woody ends )
2 medium tomatoes ( cut in half, or a bunch of grape tomatoes, leave whole )
2 large portobello mushrooms ( I like them whole )
1/2 c olive oil ( or more )
Juice from a half lemon or lime
Generous pinch of sea salt and freshly cracked pepper

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
