    Sephardi Kitchen's Note:

    Ceviche is a light and refreshing, chilled citrus-marinated seafood salad which originated in Peru. The acidity of the marinade denatures the protein structure of the fish, essentially "cooking" it. The result is a less fishy-tasting dish than other uncooked seafood. Note: Other types of fresh seafood (such as lobster, shrimp, scallops, octopus, etc) may be substituted for the fish, if desired. Always purchase the freshest seafood you can find, preferably sushi-grade.

    • 1 lb fresh tuna (cod, orange roughy, and red snapper are other good choices. You can also mix-and-match different typ) or 1 lb other firm-fleshed white fish (cod, orange roughy, and red snapper are other good choices. You can also mix-and-match different typ)
    • 3 lemons, juice of
    • 3 limes, juice of
    • 1 garlic clove, minced
    • 1 small red onion, minced (about 1 cup)
    • 1 jalapeno, chopped fine
    • 2 tablespoons finely chopped cilantro
    • 2 tablespoons parsley
    • 2 small firm-fleshed tomatoes, chopped finely
    • salt
    • 1 avocado, sliced (optional)


    1. 1
      Soak the fish in salted water for 10 minutes, gently pat dry with a paper towel. Cube the fish, and place in a shallow dish.
    2. 2
      Arrange the onions on top of the fish, and cover with the remaining ingredients. Allow to refrigerate at least 4 hours. Be sure to stir several times. The fish is done once the flesh turns white and opaque, and can be flaked slightly with a fork. This indicates that the acidity of the citrus has denatured the proteins in the fish- the same thing that happens when we "cook" in the traditional sense.
    3. 3
      Serve chilled, garnished with avocado, if desired.
