Simple Halibut Ceviche is one of the easiest seafood recipes to prepare. I know you’re probably thinking I’ve had way too much sun this summer, but truly, ceviche can be simple, flavorful and delicious and a perfect seasonal starter.
There are many different types of ceviche recipes and each South American country has their own version of ceviche. Many ceviche recipes can include ingredients from sweet potatoes and corn to squid and octopus. Although you can certainly add whatever you like to this particular ceviche recipe, I’ve kept it simple for sake of time, and flavor.
For this Simple Halibut Ceviche, I’ve combined the halibut with lime juice and white onion. Once it’s been cold poached in the lime juice, I drain the liquid and then toss it with diced fresh summer tomatoes, diced jalapeno and chopped fresh cilantro. Then I season to taste with salt and pepper and dash of hot sauce. This gorgeous dish is a delicious starter for dinner guests or fun street style tacos for a light meal.
I love to serve this Simple Halibut Ceviche with organic blue corn chips. It makes a lovely presentation and the sweet flavor of the blue corn compliments the spicy and citrus flavors of the ceviche.
For something fun and festive, I often prepare patacones to serve with the ceviche. Patacones are plantains that have been sliced, fried, flattened and fried again and then lightly seasoned with sea salt. I’ve included a recipe with the ceviche. If you’d like to see a quick tutorial on how I make patacones, you can find it HERE.
