Chilled coconut milk and honeydew with an infusion of mint and melon liqueur makes a delightful start to a meal. Served in a chilled small soup cup and garnished with a sprig of peppermint. Every time it gets wows! Volume varies with the size of the melon. I use 5-ounce servings.

A Vegetable Salad

This is the most wonderful ceviche ever. It is thick enough to be eaten as a meal and it is the only recipe I have found that kid's enjoy. It was made by Leo Longoria from south Texas and is perfect in every way. Any fish will do but I recommend Red Fish first. I have also tried with Crappie and it is wonderful.
