Mango and Calamari Ceviche

Mango and Calamari Ceviche

Serves 4 as an appetizer

Approximate Cook and Prep Time: 25 minutes plus 2 hours of chilling


  • 12 ounces cleaned calamari (substitute with scallops or shrimp if you don't like squid)
  • 1/2 cup fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 cup fresh orange juice
  • 1 tsp. lime zest
  • 1/4 tsp. curry powder
  • 1 mango, peeled and cut into cubes
  • 1/2 small red onion, finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 jalapeño pepper, seeded and minced
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • Salt and pepper


  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil (do not add salt). While waiting for the water to boil, fill a large bowl with ice and fill halfway with water.
  • When the water is boiling, add the calamari and stir. Cook for 1 minute, remove with a slotted spoon and immediately transfer to the ice water.
  • Let it sit in the ice bath for about 5 minutes and then lay the pieces on a layer of paper towels.
  • Combine the remaining ingredients in a large bowl, add the calamari, and season with salt and pepper.
  • Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours or more before serving.
  • Serve with additional cilantro and lime wedges.

    Sorry, but this recipe doesn’t make any sence to me. You only talk about the calamari and than you say that you just mix in all the left over ingredients. So do you equally just throw in the orange juice, lime juice, lime zest, curry powder, garlic and the rest ?
