Ceviche- A Summer Favorite from Costa Rica

Enjoy a Costa Rican favorite right at home. This simple ceviche recipe is low in calories, high in protein, and through the roof in flavor!

  • Tico Cooking Lesson (4)
  • 100 grams of fresh sushi-grade sea bass.  Diced.
  • 10 limes, juiced.
  • ½ medium purple onion.  Finely chopped.
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ tsp soy sauce
  • Sprigs of fresh cilantro. Finely chopped.
  • 1 ripe tomato. Wedged.
  • 1 medium avocado. Sliced in strips.
  • ¼ cup freshly squeeze orange juice (optional)

In a deep bowl, mix the lime juice, diced onion, salt, soy sauce & cilantro. Add diced fish and refrigerate for 2 or 3 hours to let the acid “cook” the fish. Garnish with tomato, avocado, and cilantro. If you want to tame the acidity, add a bit of orange juice to taste, just prior to serving. Serve chilled in a boat or bowl! For extra crisp, throw a side of yucca chips.
