Ceviche using Red Snapper

Sometimes I just don’t want to fry or bake, I like the idea of raw food, it just sounds like it is as healthy as it can get.  Besides Sushi, I love good Ceviche and was excited when I came across this really tasty Ceviche recipe at Mexico In My Kitchen, fabulous website full of really good authentic Mexican food recipes.  It’s really easy to make, and I like the fact I can get away with not cooking it and just eating it raw after it has marinaded in lime juice.  This goes good on top of a Tostada Shell, in a taco or as I did  with some tasty chips.

I found these really good tasty chips at Costco that I had with this dish.  Sweet, Spicy Gourmet Brown Rice Chips…..

1 pound red snapper filets trimmed and cut in ½ in. cubes

¾ cup of lime juice, fresh preferable

salt to taste

1 medium size onion, finely chopped

3 chiles serranos or 1 large jalapeno, finely chopped

1 cup of cilantro, finely chopped

½ teaspoon or Mexican dried oregano crushed

2 large tomatoes , finely chopped

Now these are optional but they make a great ceviche

¾ cup pimento stuffed green olives, chopped

1 avocado cubed for garnish

4 Tablespoons of olive oil


Tabasco Sauce

Saltine crackers or fried tortillas chips to serve

Marinade the fish in a glass bowl with the lime juice and salt. Chop the rest of the vegetables. Drain the marinade from the fish bowl. Stir in the tomatoes, peppers, onion, cilantro and oregano. Taste and add salt if needed. Marinade for a couple of hours in the refrigerator.
