I spent the past weekend visiting my friend Caroline and her boyfriend Brendan in West Palm Beach. Upon my arrival I found that Brendan had recently been on a fishing trip, where he caught a Cobia. Cobia is a tasty, white fish that is sometimes called a Black Salmon. A fun fish to catch, because it puts up quite a fight, and a interestingly delicious fish to eat.
|Old Man Brendan with the Cobia, after an hour-long fight! I know it looks absolutely foul, but don't judge a fish by its cover.|
So, with all of this fresh fish we had a cook-out, where I made my first home-made Ceviche, grilled bottle neck clams, and smoked a king fish.
To me, cooking is art, and I enjoy it so thoroughly. I love that you can make it up as you go, and make any recipe your own. So, I looked at a few recipes and went from there....
I give to you:
Delicious Cobia Ceviche a la Palm Beach!
2 lbs firm, fresh fish, cut into 1/2 inch pieces
1/2 cup lime juice
1/2 cup lemon juice
1/2 red onion, diced
1 cup of chopped seeded red tomatoes
2 tablespoons of salt
Tobasco and Cayenne Pepper to taste
Let the fish cook in the ingredient and juices for a few hours until it is fully white.
Add Avacodo and Cilantro when serving
Eat with tortilla chips or alone!

Unfortunately, my phone died and this was the only picture I captured.... Altogether, it looked more like this:
The Ceviche was delicious and the trip was wonderful. I love spending time with Caroline!
