Give Your Stove the Night Off With This Trio of Creative Ceviche Recipes

August 29, 2014 12:02 pm

Ceviche is a staple Peruvian dish that combines raw fish cured in citrus juices and given a signature flavor via spicy chili peppers and other seasonings. It’s become a very popular dish among American gourmet restaurants as well, and many chefs put their own unique spins on the traditional dish. Here are three creative ceviche recipes that you can make at home.

Tofu Lime Ceviche
This vegetarian ceviche uses plump tofu instead of the usual fish, so it’s completely safe for non-meat eaters. The lime juice, jalapeno, and cilantro give it a traditional flavor, while canned coconut milk adds a bit of a creamy finish.

Cauliflower Ceviche
Cauliflower is the star of the show in this flavorful dish, but it absorbs the flavor of the wonderful medley of seasonings around it. Plump Roma tomatoes, roasted poblano peppers, and fresh lime juice all work together in this vegan ceviche.

Ceviche Verde
This dish looks and tastes just as good as the ceviche served in upscale restaurants, but it’s so easy that any amateur home chef can make it. The fish is cooked by an acidic chemical reaction with the lime juice, and an assortment of jalapenos, avocado, and other green ingredients give it a zesty, fresh flavor.

Becco: All You Can Eat Fresh Pasta

August 20, 2014 11:02 am

When you need a hearty meal of comfort food, Becco will deliver. The creation of best-selling cookbook author and renowned restaurateur Lidia Bastianich and her son Joe, Becco opened in 1993 and has been pleasing customers ever since.

Located along the Theater District's Restaurant Row, this is a popular spot for tourists, but New Yorkers happily indulge in spoonfuls of fresh pasta, the house specialty. Most go for the Sinfonia di Paste, an all-you-can-eat trio of the day's pasta dishes. It comes with your choice of Caesar salad or mixed antipasto, and servers bring out pans straight from the kitchen and dish out portions table-side.

Unlike many other establishments of this caliper, Becco is reasonably priced. Many diners elect to enjoy a bottle of wine from the extensive list at $25. It's a busy restaurant and can get loud, so avoid it for a romantic date. Reservations are recommended, and times can be limited during peak days, so try to plan your visit a week or so in advance.
