Ceviche

Ceviche is one of my favorite pescetarian dishes. A Latin American staple, it is usually served as a cold appetizer. The fish isn't cooked by heat, but by the acid in the citrus fruit – it's like fruit magic! I added orange juice to smooth out the tart lime juice, and capers because well, who doesn't love those salty little flower buds?! I am using tilapia for this recipe, but you can use cod, haddock, shrimp, scallops or whatever your fishmonger has that's fresh for a good price.

Preparation

Mix all ingredients together in a glass bowl. Cover and let everything marry in the fridge at least a couple of hours, or until the fish is "cooked" through.

Stir every now and again to coat all the fish with the dressing.
