Seafood Ceviche

Ignite your taste buds with our simple, in-house recipe from Hans himself!

No items found.

Ceviche is light, versatile, and refreshing––a perfect lunch or side for dinner! A wide variety of seafood works beautifully, especially drier fishes like rockfish, red snapper, squid, octopus, or shrimp. Hans doesn’t recommend oily fish like tuna or salmon, but most things work. 

Give our recipe a try; it’s a delicious balance of sweet and savory, refreshing yet filling. We’re drooling while writing this!


  • Your choice of seafood (Note: In this video, we’re using pre-cooked shrimp but you can use raw seafood as long as it’s pre-frozen!)
  • 1 Bushel Cilantro 
  • 1/2 Medium Cucumber
  • 1 Medium Red onion 
  • 1/2 cup Lime juice 
  • 2 TBS Sriracha (or your hot sauce of choosing)
  • 2 TBS Fish sauce
  • 1 TBS Agave syrup


Chop your Cilantro. Leave it big! 

Slice your Cucumbers and Red Onion thinly. 

Mix your seafood, Cilantro, Cucumber, Red Onion, and Lime Juice in a bowl. Note that you want to dress your ceviche a little heavy because the veggies and seafood will soak some up! 

Add a little Sriracha, Fish Sauce (be careful since this is salty), and some Agave Syrup to taste. 

Your ceviche is done! If you’re using raw seafood, you may want it to sit for a minute or two as the acid from the lime juice “cooks” the protein.

Do you know how to shuck an oyster? 🤨 Follow these steps below and you'll be a pro in no time 🦪 👇🏽 1️⃣ Get your shucking knife (we love using @toadfishoutfitters) and wrap your oyster in a towel to prevent any hand-stabbing accidents. 2️⃣ Look for the hinge in the back and put your knife in then give the knife a little twist. You should feel it pop. 3️⃣ Run your knife across the top of the oyster. This will disconnect the adductor muscle and allow the shell to separate. 4️⃣ Keep an eye out for any shells that may have fallen in the oyster. Move your knife along the bottom and disconnect the oyster from the shell for easy slurping. (You can then flip the oyster in the shell if you like tho this is optional and for aesthetic purposes only.) 5️⃣ It's ready to eat! Toss it back & enjoy that amazing taste of the salty ocean. Check out Heidi's "How to Shuck an Oyster Like A Boss" video for more 🧡 and visit our shop for a wide range of amazing oyster vinegars, mignonettes, and hot sauces.🔥🌶
