Summer Ceviche – Recipe!

Print Friendly

Sushi and Sashimi have been popular Japanese food for many years here in the states , and Poke’, a Hawaiian favorite, has been popping up in fast casual cafes more recently.  Ceviche, a dish from Latin America and Caribbean cultures, is a mixture of raw seafood, lime juice, chiles, onions and fresh herbs is sometimes seen in Mexican or full service restaurants, but is less popular by comparison.

Ceviche is such a refreshing dish because it is cured with citrus juices, not soy sauce, so it tends to have a cleaner flavor, than Poke’.  Ceviche can be made with a variety of fish, fruits and other vegetables, which makes it a great to make in the summer months, when so much produce is available.  Also, it is the perfect no-cook meal option for those of you who want to keep your kitchens cool this season.

My recipe for Summer Ceviche is a nice balance of Ahi tuna, fresh mango, avocado, a squeeze of lime juice, along with a little heat from a Serrano chile.  The tuna marinates in the lime juice for a sensational texture and gentle flavor.  A prefer to service it as an appetizer, but you can eat it for a light dinner or serve it over greens as a nice salad.  Ceviche is definitely a delightful summertime food.
