Red Snapper Aguachile

Aguachile is originally from Mazatlán and the northern Pacific coast of Mexico and is considered the Mexican version of ceviche. Aguachile or “spicy water” (agua = water, chile = well, chile) is a water-based citrus sauce that you pour on top of raw seafood, especially shrimp (prawns), scallops, and fish. It tends to have four main ingredients: Key lime, fresh chile, cilantro (coriander), and cucumber and is served with sliced onions and sometimes more cucumber as a garnish. The celery and tomatillo add lightness and freshness, making the dish a bit more complex. The aguachile should be made as close to serving as possible. You can plate in one large platter served for the table or in individual portions and it’s served with crispy tostadas.

When you’re stuck at home right now, it’s hard to find meaningful experiences with family and friends. That’s exactly what Alejandro and Jeremy gave us - a chance to spend time, virtually, together while learning how to make delicious food.

My husband and I made the churros + Mexican Hot Chocolate and it was such a fun experience! Alejandro was great and we felt like we got to go on a trip to Mexico even though we never left our kitchen!

We had an amazing time cooking with Alejandro! Felt like we were all in the same room. The recipe was easy enough for everyone to get with great instruction every step of the way. The homemade tortillas + chicken tinga tasted unbelievable, honestly, so good. I would definitely do it again and can’t wait to try more dishes!
