'Lobster Ceviche' ~ a unique spin on ceviche

There I was, sitting in the kitchen, hungry for something to eat, nothing planned for my dinner, dying for some Mexican food ~ well, it is Cinco de Mayo after all.  Everyone else had already eaten & I only had myself to worry about.  I was craving some ceviche...but didn't have the necessary ingredients in the fridge.

Hmmm...  I was surfing the web & came upon this recipe for a lobster ceviche.  It sounded good & I did have some of those 'imitation lobster chunks' (similar to the imitation crab/krab chunks, just in lobster flavor) in my fridge ~ I can work with that.  What I was inspired to create turned out REALLY tasty.  It was quick to get on the table since I didn't have to let the imitation 'lobster chunks' marinate in the lime juice like you would raw fish.   Another real-time, on-the-fly, meal from my kitchen.  Hope you give my 'inspired by' recipe a try, it's a keeper!

 Happy Cinco de Mayo!
