Ceviche de Camaron (Shrimp Cocktail)

El Ranchito Restaurant, Zillah



Ceviche (or seviche) is an appetizer that is popular throughout Latin America. Sometimes known as “Mexican Sushi,” although the acidity of the lime juice actually "cooks" the shrimp or fish and firms the flesh.


When lime and cilantro are major flavors, Riesling is the match. Our Riesling is from one of Yakima Valley’s best vineyards, crisp and zingy to match with the zingy fruit and seafood that is ceviche. Riesling, the most versatile food wine and the perfect companion to ceviche, sushi, or most any disk with lime and cilantro.




          1 lb                       large shrimp (quartered)

          ½                          red onion (sliced)

          8                           limes (juiced)

          1-2                        jalapeños (chopped)

          ½ cup                    fresh cilantro (chopped)

          ¼ tsp                    salt

                                      pepper, to taste


Mix and let set overnight

Serves 4


Serving suggestion: scoop up with a tostada or roll up in a fresh, warm tortilla and enjoy with Paradisos del Sol’s Riesling.


El Ranchito Restaurant:




El Ranchito is not just a restaurant, it is a culinary mecca, an institution, an icon, a tradition, a “where have you been all my life,” a slice of Mexico, a standard bearer, a benchmark, where they make REAL Mexican food.


They have been doing so for 56 years. When you walk through the doors, you walk into a different America—a Spanish America with piñatas, tortillas, empanadas, and musica Mexicana. This is what makes the USA great, it is what we give thanks for.


El Ranchito is the oldest Mexican restaurant in the Yakima Valley. Family owned, it has been voted #1 Mexican Restaurant in “Northwest’s Best Places” six years in a row! It is located just a mile east of the center of Zillah. 1319 1st Ave, Zillah, WA, 509.829.5880. Open daily 9:30am to 6:30pm. Call first if you are planning on dinner, sometimes they leave a bit early in the winter.
