Whitney Miller’s Red Snapper Ceviche

It was love at first bite. I fell in love with ceviche after trying it at a restaurant in San Diego, California. It was warm outside and the refreshing, cool, citric fish appetizer was welcoming. Whenever I need to cool off, I whip up this ceviche for an appetizer or light dinner.

Red Snapper Ceviche
1/2 pound skinless red snapper
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
1/4 cup julienned jicama
7 grape tomatoes, sliced lengthwise
1 avocado, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
1 tablespoon finely sliced red onion
1 tablespoon fresh cilantro leaves
1/2 fresh jalapeno, thinly sliced
Fine sea salt
Homemade or store bought Corn Tortilla chips

Slice the red snapper into 1/2-inch cubes. Place the cubed snapper in a shallow container or bowl. Pour the lime juice over the top to almost cover the snapper. Cover and refrigerate for about 30 minutes.

Add the jicama, tomatoes, avocado, red onion, cilantro, and jalapeño to the snapper. Lightly toss to combine.

Season the ceviche with salt to taste. Serve immediately with the chips.

Serves 4.
