Seafood Ceviche with California Avocado Mousse and Pickled Onions (NAPS)

(NAPSI)—Summer in California is synonymous with sunny beach days, al fresco dining and of course, great music.

To celebrate the peak of California avocado season, the California Avocado Commission (CAC) has developed the first ever California Avocado Summer Soundtrack Cookbook to celebrate two locally grown and distinctly California elements fundamental to its lifestyle—the state’s regional musical sounds and California avocados.

CAC has enlisted the expertise of Chef Phillip Frankland Lee of Scratch Restaurants and several local food and lifestyle tastemakers to create imaginative ways to use fresh, heart-healthy California avocados. From appetizers to entrees, desserts to beverages, each recipe showcases the fruit’s incredible culinary versatility, inspired by the unique sounds of the California music scene.

California cuisine is a smörgåsbord of various flavors, cultures and culinary delights, in which the California avocado fits seamlessly. Chef Lee highlights this with his Seafood Ceviche with California Avocado Mousse and Pickled Onions, inspired by the 90’s punk music scene of Orange County.

“I’m always excited when California avocados are in season because I know they will be fresh and of exceptional quality,” said Chef Lee. “I am constantly inspired to find new ways to feature this delicious fruit.”
