At Our Boat House, we enjoy providing excellent customer service and sharing our beautiful products with our customers and clients - so much - that it does not feel like work to us!
We love (and have) our signature products like comfortable slipcovered sofas, sectionals and chairs. We also decorate with those coastal inspired items we sell. In our own homes, we actually display and enjoy those unique pieces that are reminiscent of our favorite ocean-side vacation spot. So, for our Labor Day celebration, we plan to enjoy the day with friends & family while utilizing our favorite finds.

Simple & Fresh Shrimp Ceviche by Kendall
When I think of an appetizer that evokes the feeling of being by the ocean, I think simple, fresh, and of course seafood! What better way to gather with friends for Labor Day than over a delicious citrusy ceviche? If you haven’t had a fresh catch lately, don’t worry. You can find all the ingredients you need for this dish at your local grocery store, and when you use cooked shrimp from the seafood counter, you don’t need to wait for the citrus juices to “cook” the fish. Unlike most ceviche that needs to be made ahead of serving, this appetizer can be whipped up as close to
your guests arrival as 30 minutes.
After you’ve prepped your ceviche and allowed it to chill in the refrigerator for 30+ minutes, serve it in a large bowl with tortilla chips for a crowd, or in a margarita/martini glass for individual servings. Bonus points if you use plantain chips!
1 lb. cooked shrimp, cut into 1/2 inch pieces
1-2 jalapeño peppers, ribs & seeds removed, then minced
1/4 cup red onion, diced
2 Roma tomatoes, seeds removed then diced
Juice of 1 lemon
Juice of 2 limes
Juice of 1 navel orange
1 avocado, cubed
1/4 cup cilantro leaves, chopped
Mix the shrimp, jalapeño, red onion, tomatoes in a large bowl. Squeeze citrus juices over the top. Stir in cilantro. Add avocado and stir gently to combine.
Chill in separate dishes or chill in a bowl for 2-4 hours prior to serving.
