Crabmeat Seviche

Prep time 31 mins
Other time 30 mins
Yield 6 servings (serving size: about 1/2 cup)
Traditional seviche consists of raw fish marinated in lime juice, onions, tomatoes, and chiles. The acid in the lime juice firms the flesh of the fish and turns it opaque. We used crabmeat instead of fish and added more vegetables for an upscale appetizer that makes an impressive presentation when served in a small wide-mouthed glass.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup finely chopped red onion
  • 1/2 cup chopped plum tomato (about 2)
  • 1/2 cup diced seeded peeled cucumber
  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1/3 cup fresh lime juice (about 3 limes)
  • 1/4 cup chopped green onions
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 2 teaspoons hot sauce
  • 1 jalapeño pepper, seeded and minced
  • 1 pound lump crabmeat, shell pieces removed
