Day 114: Micronesia and Kelaguen

Good evening, Raffies!

Today we are going for a light and quick dinner: Micronesia and shrimp Kelaguen.
This dish resembles the Latin American ceviche and can actually be made out of either fish or meat. We went for the traditional shrimp, but chicken or octopus also sounded really tempting..

The dish was perfect for this warm and summery day. Furthermore, we are going to a Food Festival in town later on, which means that being too full and fed, would not be a good idea..

Anyways, as for the recipe:


500 g fresh shrimps – they have to be REALLY fresh, if you are going to eat them uncooked, otherwise boil them for a few minutes
3 lemons, juice
1 onion, thinly chopped
chili, the amount depends on how spicy you want the dish
grated coconut
greens to decorate

Take your peeled shrimps and chop them up. Place them in a bowl for about 15 minutes with the lemon juice. Mix them well and wait until they get “cooked” by the lemon juice.
Now add the chili, the onion, salt and pepper and mix well. To finish off, add the freshly grated coconut – if you have it fresh, otherwise the normal grated one – and some greens. Serve on salad leaves or banana leaves.

Well, I wish shrimp were less pricey here, since I could definitely eat this every single day! It is so incredibly refreshing and delicious!
