Ceviche Recipe

Homemade Ceviche Is Fresh, Flavorful, and Fabulous

Ceviche is a cool and delicious dish in which raw fish is marinated in fresh citrus juice. The acid of the juice "cooks" the fish until it is firm and plump. It's a wonderful Summer course that can be served as an appetizer with tortilla chips or placed atop a bed of greens as an entree. Although it may not be the most authentic Peruvian recipe, this is my favorite rendition of ceviche. It's packed with vibrant colors and crunchy flavors. When making any variation of ceviche, it's important to purchase the most fresh fish available. Using fish that has been previously frozen won't yield the same results.

Ingredients

12 ounces very fresh (sushi-grade) white-fleshed ocean fish, such as grouper, wahoo, sea bass, or red snapper*
1/3 cup fresh lime juice
3 tablespoons fresh orange juice
3 tablespoons pineapple juice
1 1/2 tablespoons finely diced serrano pepper
2 tablespoons finely diced yellow bell pepper
2 tablespoons finely diced red bell pepper
1 1/2 tablespoons minced red onion
1 teaspoon minced garlic
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro leaves
1 tablespoon good quality extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
8 (3-inch) plantain chips*
Lime wedges, for serving

Directions

*I used halibut and chose to serve the ceviche with tortilla chips.

Mmmmmmmmmmm... ceviche. I don't know about adding olive and orange juice though. And cilantro is key, it's what gives it it's flavor!

Oooh I love this but with tuna sashimi! I had it first at a restaurant called BH in Tampa, but that's where I also learned that I absolutely loathe cilantro :) So if you don't like it then you certainly should omit it from the dish b/c it can quickly become a fav too.
