For the Ceviche Base
In a large pot of salted boiling water, blanch your seafood until just cooked through – cooking times will depend on the size of the food. Using a slotted spoon or spider, remove the cooked seafood into an ice bath. Remove from ice bath and keep chilled.
In a large bowl, mix all of the seafood with the onion, tomatoes, bell pepper, scallions, cilantro, olive oil, and salt and pepper to taste. Mix in the lime zest, lime juice, orange zest, orange juice, English cucumber, jalapeno, and ketchup and let marinate for 30 min. Gently fold in the avocado right before serving.
Garnish with tortilla chips
To Serve
Divide ceviche into rocks glasses with appropriate garnishes and serve with a spoon. Be sure to include some “leche de tigre” (marinade) with each portion!
