    Top Banana's Note:

    This is my own creation using both modern and traditional ceviche methods. The key of course is fresh fresh Ahi. There's nothing better. Like 'butter'. chef@restaurantbeast.comOne of the reasons that a really terrific Ceviche is , well, really terrific is the type of fish and/or seafood used. It MUST be absolutely of the freshest quality. A friend of mine and his girlfriend were recently in Hawaii and were raving about the quality of the Ahi there. We had a conversation on our foodservice professionals board ( )about cryovac Ahi which is harvested in Hawaii and immediately IQF and placed in cryovac so that no oxygen can destroy it's freshness. Rumor has it that Roy Yamaguchi uses this type of Ahi for his restaurant in Palm Dessert (most likely not for his famous in Hawaii). My version is a bit of a cross between two different styles. Shrimp that has been quickly blanched pink, halibut or other sushi-grade fish can also be used in place of the Ahi.

      I liked the recipe in general but wanted a bit more boldness in flavor, as well as wanted to use ingredients locally available here. Here is my modified ingredient list

      1.5 lb. fresh albacore tuna
      5-6 carabao mangoes
      2 of big green avocados (florida style, not haas... available locally in the pacific islands)
      1 cup calamansi lime juice
      1/2 jalapeno or a few donne peppers
      2 Tbsp chopped cilantro
      1 tomato finely diced
      salt and sugar to taste (about 1 tsp. salt and 2 Tbsp. sugar)
      15 dashes hot sauce

      Very nice ceviche! I served mine in mini wonton cups which were so stinking cute. I enjoyed the addition of mango. Next time I will add a bit more onion, a pinch of garlic and some cilantro. This has been in my to-do pile for about a year, so I am glad it's finally been made!
