This is a wonderfully light and fresh seafood dish which can be eaten as a topping to a chopped salad or as an appetizer with tortilla chips. It is made with fresh fish which is cooked without the use of heat, but rather through the acid reaction that happens when citrus juice comes in contact with the fish.
It's really easy to make and includes a great assortment of fresh veggies to give it an awesome flavor!
1¼ lbs. mild fish (tilapia, mahi mahi, halibut)
½ cup red bell pepper
1 clove minced garlic
¼ cup chopped celery
*¼ cup chopped and seeded cucumber
*¼ cup habanero pepper minced (optional)
2 stalks of chopped green onion
1 tsp. kosher salt or ½ tsp. table salt
1/3 cup fresh lime juice (about 4 limes)
1/8 cup minced cilantro
Chop the fish into bite sized pieces and store in the fridge. Meanwhile chop and mince up the veggies. Add the lime juice and salt to the entire mixture. Mix well. Store in the refrigerator for an hour. Add ground pepper to taste.
*I chose not to add the cucumber or pepper since I'm not a fan of either and I thought the flavor was still robust and totally yummy!
