    This was very refreshing. Cool and not overly spicey. The peach soup was a little thick, but I may have used too many peaches. I used frozen peaches as we are a long way from fresh local peaches around here. The seviche was outstanding and can stand on it own if you don't want to make the soup.

    I loved, loved, loved, loved this! I followed the recipe to a T and what a payoff. Once you mix the ceviche with the soup, you don't get too much of a peach flavor - which is OK. You do get the perfect amount of sweetness and that wonderful citrus flavor from the ceviche. Oh, so good!

    OH Cooking Light how you once again created a great dish. I wish crab weren't so expensive though....This was great, we just made the avocado-buttermilk soup with crab salsa the week before and though that was even better than this one. So this is our second favorite cold soup. Since this one does not have buttermilk, it isn't as creamy. The flavor combinations were awesome, the sweet from the peaches and the spicy from the peppers made this incredible. I would make it again although with the expensive price of crab we may try to just use shrimp in the future on it's own.

    The soup was excellent, but I especially enjoyed the ceviche--it could stand on it's own. I used frozen shrimp and canned crabmeat. Very easy to prepare and tasty. More tart, than sweet--but I'm sure that depends on your peaches.

    This recipe is seriously AMAZING. I brought it as my dish for cooking club on Saturday night with my girlfriends, and everyone looooved it. I immediately went out and bought all the ingredients again the next day so I could make it for my dad for Father's Day! It is so unique and so refreshingly delicious. I lucked out and got perfectly ripe fresh sweet Georgia peaches. Lump crabmeat is expensive but it's so worth it! I loved the little kick from the radishes. I will go ahead and say that this is one of the most delicious things I have EVER EATEN IN MY LIFE. Haha. I know, dramatic, but I love seafood and am OBSESSED with peaches! I highly recommend this recipe!

    A lovely combination - taste of summer! I'd suggest serving it as a first course, though. I served it for dinner and it got a little repetitive because of the universally smooth texture. It'd be wonderful as a "shooter" appetizer for an al fresco dinner party. Plated alongside a toasted baguette with fresh basil/orange zest butter.

    Pefect summer flavors. The seviche could stand on its own with tortilla chips. This would be an excellent first course for a party, but if you are going for presentation do not use white peaches. I did and my color came out grey.
