    tortilla chips

    1 In a non-reactive casserole dish, either Pyrex or ceramic, place the shrimp, onion, tomatoes, chili, salt, Tabasco, and oregano. Cover with lime and lemon juice. Let sit covered in the refrigerator for an hour, then stir, making sure more of the fish gets exposed to the acidic lime and lemon juices. Let sit for several hours, giving time for the flavors to blend.

    2 Serve with chopped cilantro and slices of avocado with heated tortillas for ceviche tacos or with tortilla chips.

    Olives a la Madrilene
    Olives a la Madrilene or in Spanish, "Aceitunas a la Madrileña" is served in Spain as a tapa or to accompany a meal. It can be served year-round, but is especially enjoyable in the summer. It is a simple and quick recipe, but the olives need about an hour to marinate for full flavor before serving.
