This can be eaten on tostadas, as a dip for chips, or if you are on a diet like I am, it can be eaten as a refreshing salad or in lettuce wraps.

It's a great idea to keep half of the lime in the bowl with the rest of ingredients to allow a perfect mix of flavors. Excellent!!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Begin by cutting the tilapia into very tiny pieces about the size of a green pea. Place the cut up fish in a glass or plastic bowl.
  2. Juice all 10 limes into the bowl with the fish. Sprinkle 1 tsp salt over the fish and lime juice and mix thoroughly.
  3. Allow the fish to sit at room temperature in the lime juice for 2 hours until the fish is cooked and turns white.
  4. Pour half of the lime juice out of the bowl and discard. Add the tomatoes, cilantro, jalapenos, and onion in with the fish and mix well.
  5. Place plastic wrap over the bowl and store in the refridgerator for 30 minutes to allow the flavors to meld.
  6. Season with salt to taste and serve.
