Bycatch And Local Fish Ceviche - Chris Shepherd

Chris Shepherd- Owner/Executive Chef at Underbelly Hospitality
"There are actually very few people living in Houston that are originally from here, so we have access to so many cultures-things to see and things to taste. People need to take advantage of that."

What you will need

  • 2 lbs. of local bycatch fillets (triggerfish, Vermillion, and the other snapper boat fish)
  • 1 lb. of local gulf shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1/2 cup of lime juice
  • 1/4 cup of orange juice
  • 1 tomato, diced
  • 1 small red onion, diced
  • 1 small bunch of cilantro, chopped
  • 1 small jalapeno, seeded and minced
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Steps to follow

1. In a medium pot over medium-high heat, add 1 quart of water and 2 tablespoons of salt and bring to a simmer. Poach the shrimp until just pink. Strain and chill.

2. Dice the fish into 1/4 inch squares and place in a bowl. Add the juices and let marinate or cook for 45-60 min. Drain the fish slightly. Add the remaining ingredients and let marinate for 45 minutes.

3. Season and serve.
