“Cooking” with beer
Do you guys ever cook with beer? I do! In Mexico, I grew up eating many foods that were either marinated & cook with cerveza (like this Cochinita Pibil), drizzled with cerveza (do that next time you grill Carne asada) or had cerveza as one of the main ingredients like this ceviche.
What can I say? Sonora Mexico is a place where beer is one of the most popular drinks!
About this Mexican Fish & Mango Ceviche “cooked” in beer
The key to cooking ceviche is to let it marinate in lime juice for a minimum of two hours. The acidity of the lime juice will penetrate the tender & fresh fish and “cook” it during this process.
Use fresh limes for this cooking process as the bottled stuff will not do it. Plus you can’t beat the flavor of fresh lime juice!
This new chelada is simply delicious and is made with authentic Mexican beer and the refreshing natural flavors of lime and salt. I love that this drink brings the classic michelada flavor to the U.S. as the only non-tomato based, salt and lime-forward chelada.
I basically grew up eating limon y sal with everything! So there was no doubt I would end up loving this type of chelada 🙂
I’m happy to partner with Modelo USA to create a few custom ceviche recipes. Today I’m using the newest product in the Modelo Chelada lineup: Modelo Chelada Limon y Sal.
