Mixed seafood ceviche

Mixed seafood ceviche

A no-cook recipe great for a hot summer day. Marinated in lime juice, the fish takes on a smooth and tender texture, combined with a bit of crunch from the onion, a bit of heat from the jalapenos, a bit of coolness from the tomatoes, and a bit of creaminess from the avocado…This mixed seafood ceviche is a real fiesta in your mouth!

What seafood to choose

This mixed seafood ceviche recipe calls for a mix of scallops, shrimp and white fish. Cod will work well, but I often use tilapia since it’s cheap and readily available. Any kind of mild tasting semi-firm white fish is fine though: sea bass, grouper, flounder, snapper…

If you live near a coast and know your fish monger by first name, by all means buy fresh. Where I live, frozen fish is my first choice as it guarantees freshness!

You can make variations of this dish by omitting scallops, shrimp, or using just one type of seafood. I personally like the combination of the three which makes it more interesting.

How to serve mixed seafood ceviche

Serve as appetizer (with plantain, sweet potato chips or corn tortillas for example) or as a main course with a side of cilantro rice or grilled corn.
