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… A real fiesta in your mouth! Serve as appetizer (with plantain chips for example) or main course with a side of roasted sweet potatoes, corn, or avocado

  • 1 1/2 pounds White fish cod, tilapia or other
  • 1/4 pound Scallops
  • 1/4 pound Shrimp peeled and deveined
  • 3/4 cup Lime juice enough to cover the fish
  • 1/2 ea Red onion chopped (about 1/2 cup)
  • 2 tbsp Jalapeno pepper chopped (about 1 large)
  • 1 cup Cherry tomatoes halved
  • 1 ea Avocado cubed
  • 1/4 cup Cilantro chopped
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper


  • Rinse and pat dry the fish, shrimp and scallops. Cut all in very small pieces (about 1/4 inch). Place in a glass bowl. Cover with lime juice and 1/2 tsp salt. Make sure the fish is completely covered, if needed add more lime juice.
  • Cover and refrigerate for 4 hours, stirring occasionally.
  • Add jalapeno and onion and refrigerate for another 2 hours.
  • When ready to serve, add tomatoes, avocado, cilantro and 1/2 tsp salt.
  • Garnish with lime wedges.


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