Tequila Lime Shrimp Bowl is a light mexican citric recipe with a touch of heat made of sauté shrimps, avocado, cilantro leaves, pico de gallo, mango and quinoa for a light and colorful Mexican dinner. This Mexican bowl is filled with fresh and colorful ingredients and simply irresistible for a hot summer night. The protagonist of the bowl here is the shrimps, they are cooked in a tad of tequila, garlic, habanero and a squeeze of lime for a little boost in flavor. I saw the recipe of Tequila Lime Shrimp here and there on the web and wanted to try it out. I add to come up with a slightly different version, so I’ve done a Mexican Bowl. Nothing looks more appealing to me than a simple bowl with lots of fresh and colorful veggies one next to the other and a touch of protein and grains. To flame or not to flame…

This Fast and Easy Shrimp Ceviche is a light and refreshing appetizer, great for any occasions. This quick version contains some fresh dill, tomatoes, avocado and red onions. Having gone through South and Central Americas… each country has their own version of ceviche. The ‘Fast and Easy Shrimp Ceviche’ recipe is a mix of them all. For instance, in Mexico, they make it quite spicy and usually contains avocados. In Peru, it’s a main dish, served with choclo (big grain corn), sweet potatoes and it’s lightly spiced with aji or rocoto hot peppers. In Colombia, the ceviche is often made with ketchup or tomato sauce which makes it red served with fried plantain (patacones). Finally, in Ecuador, the ceviches are like a soup, with an extra shrimp broth, lots of cilantro and barely spicy. They are also many variations; some with fish, shrimps, shellfish, even shark meat (Trujillo, Peru). But in the end, even if ceviches…

Peruvian Pisco Sour is a gem, this foamy lemonade cocktail contains a grape distilled liquor called Pisco with limes, syrup and an egg white topped with a few drops of Angostura bitter. I know the egg white can scare a few away… there might be a minuscule risk of getting sick but there isn’t any problem if you get a fresh egg and let me say: the danger is well worth it!

A Peruvian drink I’ve spend a year in Peru, where on our first night out, we were told to try this foamy and refreshing drink, their national drink. Right on the spot, I’ve felt in love for this drink, this unique drink with its thick foam is so refreshing. It’s the margarita of Peru, everyone passing by, needs to try this famous Peruvian cocktail called Pisco…

You’ll say this looks exactly like the simple cup of strawberries topped with whipped cream… boring… but you are far from the truth! This is a coconut milk infused with kaffir lime mousse. As soon as you’ll taste it, you’ll wish for the rest of your life, to have this mousse instead of that whipped cream. I ate it, at first, in one of my favorite restaurant, as a side cream to a “Chocolate fondant” dessert… So delicious! Another plus is: whipped cream is fat while this is made with coconut milk which is way lighter. I’ve used a siphon to foam it, obviously you can do it without, but then it’s simply gonna be a liquid, which taste as good though… Siphon is the last “kitchen gadget” I got myself… especially to reproduce this coco-lime mousse and I don’t regret it at all. You can do millions of recipes with it, cold to…
