My daughter and I love seafood while my husband and son don’t. So if we do seafood it is usually on the grill. But my daughter wanted to try ceviche and I found this ceviche and thought I could try it out. Because hers looked a bit too spicy for a kid’s palette I changed it a bit for our family.
I bought flounder as it was wild caught and fresh. Turns out tilapia is only farm raised. I avoid that as I don’t like all the antibiotics they use.
I chop them up into small cubes and put in a bowl. Then cover with lime juice. Do this for at least 45 minutes. Next time I make this I will probably do a blend of citrus juices as pure lime juice is overpowering for me.
Chop up some onion, garlic, and tomato. Mix in cilantro and a bit of lime juice. Instead of hot peppers I added chili pepper and adobe seasoning. Stir well and set aside for a bit so the flavours mix.
Then chop up an avocado and add. If you aren’t going to serve for awhile add the pit to the salsa to keep the avocado from browning.
For my husband and son I served the salsa before I added the fish. Add the fish and serve. A nice accompaniment to this would be lime flavoured tortilla chips.
This is easy to make and the prep time is minimal. The length of time is primarily waiting for the fish.
