Tomato Jalapeño Ceviche

Ceviche is a refreshing South American raw fish salad with tomato, chiles, cilantro and lime juice. We use cod, but any fresh fish will work.

  • 1 lb boneless, skinless cod fillets, cut into ½-inch cubes
  • 3/4 cup fresh lime juice 
(about 6 limes)

  • 1 cup loosely packed chopped fresh cilantro


  1. Place bowls in freezer to chill.
  2. In a large stainless steel, glass or ceramic bowl, add cod, lime juice and pinch salt; toss gently to coat. Cover and refrigerate for 20 to 30 minutes, until cod is opaque throughout and springy to the touch.
  3. Drain and discard lime juice from cod. Return cod to bowl and add tomatoes, jalapeño, onion and cilantro. Season with additional salt and toss gently to combine. Serve immediately in chilled bowls.
