Smoked Shandy Ceviche

The combination of two worlds, the smoked and raw, the smoked Shandy Ceviche is a bold and refreshing. I started with fresh caught pacific prawns and clams from good buddy Jeff (shout-out) and used a bit of Leinenkugel’s Grapefruit Shandy. The result is a smokey, yet bright seafood dish.
