Ceviche with Coconut and Mango

A perfect appetizer for the hot summer days!  It’s chilled, super flavorful and the best part… you can make it ahead of time.  Sure you can make a simple citrus ceviche, but why not add some exotic flavors like coconut and mango!! 🙂  I promise this is the best summer appetizer you’ll serve this season.

Very possibly my favorite curry to make.  This recipe has so many selling points… Super easy, 3 step (I count it as 2.5 steps) recipe. Stores really well.  It actually gets better over the days if you re-heat in the pan. EVERYONE loves it.
