Step by step recipe
- 1: Clean and trim 400 g fish fillet (choose a white fish such as whiting, sole, cod, pollack, etc). Dice fairly small and put into a bowl.
- 2: Prepare 1 red onion (use a small one), chop finely and add to the diced fish. Salt and pepper then mix well.
- 3: Grate 10 g ginger and 1 garlic clove into the bowl, then mix again.
- 4: Squeeze 5 limes.
- 5: Pour the squeezed lime juice over the fish, mix well, cover with a lid or plastic film and leave to "cook" at room temperature for 30 minutes.
- 6: After this time, drain the fish thoroughly, You will notice that the fish will have turned from slightly translucent to opaque after curing (effectively cooked).
- 7: Slice 800 g cooked potatoes and reheat if necessary.
- 8: Serve the ceviche on a bed of lettuce with a little choppped coriander scattered over and with sliced potatoes on the side.
For a real Peruvian touch, add a finely chopped fresh red chilli at stage 3
, and use sweet potatoes instead of normal ones.
For even more flavour, zest
one of the limes and add this to the juice for curing.
You can drizzle a little herb olive oil
onto the ceviche just before serving.
Do feel free to adjust the amount of ginger (more or less) and garlic to suit your own tastes.
