Lindita's Tilapia Ceviche!

Tilapia Ceviche

 

2 lbs. Tilapia filets, finely diced.

 

1 Cup fresh squeezed lime juice (8 large limes)

 

1/2 Onion, finely diced.

 

1/2 Cucumber, peeled, seeded and finely diced, add more for that added crunch.

 

1/2 Large tomato, seeded and finely chopped.

 

1 Serrano Pepper, seeded and finely diced.

 

1/4 Cup fresh cilantro leaves, chopped.

 

Salt & pepper to taste

 

1 avocado, pitted, peeled, cubed or thinly sliced for topping.

 

Salsa or hot sauce for topping.

In a large 9 x 13 baking dish place the diced tilapia, pour fresh lime juice completely covering fish.

 

Gently combine and cover with plastic wrap and place in refrigerator and chill for at least 20-30 minutes or until fish is completely white. This means it’s fully cooked!

 

Remove from the refrigerator and place in a strainer and slowly press to drain off the juice.

 

Discard the lime juice. In a large bowl add all the above ingredients, and toss in tilapia, gently stir and season with salt and pepper. 

 

Serve it up on a grilled tostada and top with fresh cubed or sliced avocado.

 

You can also serve it up in a taco or a burrito wrap ~

Cilantro Lime Rice

2 Cups dry long grain white rice    

 

3 Cups water

 

2 tsp salt

 

1 Lime, squeezed

 

1 Large bay leaf or 2 small

 

1/4 Cup fresh cilantro leaves, chopped

 

4 tsp olive oil

Rinse the rice in a fine mesh sieve until water runs clear, drain well, and set aside.

Pour water in a large saucepan add rice and 2 teaspoons of oil, salt, and stir well.

Add bay leaf and a cilantro stem.

Bring to a boil then reduce heat to low, cover and let simmer until water is absorbed, for about 15-20 minutes.

 

Remove  from heat and let rest, covered.

 

Remove bay leaf

 

Add 2 teaspoons of oil, lime juice and stir in cilantro.

 

Serve warm.

 

Chilled white wine or a margarita will definitely complement this meal.

 

Enjoy! Mis Amigos~
