I just entered this recipe challenge hosted by Cape Cod Select and was tasked to come up with three different recipes incorporating their amazing Frozen Cranberries. This recipe for Shrimp Ceviche with Cranberry Jalapeño Granita is going to be my submission for the “Cran-You-Believe It” category.

Right? This is definitely not your average cranberry recipe. Surely granita has been made with cranberries before, but I doubt with fresh jalapeños and served as a topping for ceviche.

Go give Cape Cod Select a follow on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest. Follow along my journey to see if I can win the grand prize!

HOW TO

Grab a bowl and combine all of the ingredients for the granita. Mix well. Set aside to allow the cranberries to unthaw and release some of their juices.

Heat up the seafood stock and coconut milk in a pot to just under a boil. Add in the shrimp. It should only take a few minutes for the shrimp to turn pink. Strain shrimp in a colander (do not rinse). Allow to cool.

Combine the rest of the ingredients for the ceviche in a large bowl. Cut each shrimp into three pieces. This recipe is a lot about taste. Once all of the ingredients are combined (taste to see if you need additional salt or lime juice).

Reserve ceviche in fridge. By this time, the cranberry mixture should be ready to go. Place the entire contents of the bowl into a food processor. Pulse until fully combined and ensuring the cranberries are mashed.

Strain the cranberry mixture through a sieve into a shallow pan or glass dish. Freeze for 45 minutes. Remove from freezer and with a fork, move the mixture around, so that any liquid incorporates with the slush. Place back in freezer for another 45 minutes. Scrap with a form to create the granita.

TO PLATE THE CEVICHE WITH CRANBERRY JALAPENO GRANITA

Pull the ceviche out from the fridge. Top the ceviche with generous spoonfuls of the Cranberry Jalapeño Granita. Serve immediately! ENJOY! You will not believe the incredible explosion of flavor these Cape Cod Select premium cranberries lend to this dish.
