Oyster Ceviche


12 oysters

1/4 cup lime juice (from about 2 limes)

1/4 cup orange juice (from about half an orange)

2 tablespoons lemon juice (from about half a lemon)

1/4 cup finely sliced red onion

1 tablespoon chopped cilantro, plus leaves for garnish

1 teaspoon olive oil

1/2 teaspoon Tabasco

Salt and pepper to taste

Chips to serve


  1. Shuck the oysters. Drain the shucked oysters in a fine mesh sieve and let sit until there is no liquid, about 5 minutes.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the lime, orange, and lemon juices. Add the drained oysters and let marinate for 5 minutes.
  3. Toss in the remaining ingredients and season to taste with salt and black pepper.
  4. Serve the oyster ceviche immediately with tortilla or potato chips alongside.
