In this ceviche, our Very Verde Salsa makes quick work of infusing traditional ceviche ingredients, while delivering a unique homemade creation with a balance of creamy avocado, tomatillos, and a tangy punch of lemon and lime. Paired with succulent white fish that's been gently "cooked" in citrus juices, the salsa adds a depth of flavor that's both invigorating and satisfying. Simple to prepare, yet impressive in taste and presentation, this ceviche is a testament to the power of fresh, quality ingredients coming together to create a dish that's both enjoyable to make and delightful to eat.
- Prep the Fish: In a glass bowl, combine the cubed fish or shrimp with approximately 1 cup of freshly squeezed lime juice, making sure the fish is fully covered. Stir gently and refrigerate for about 1-2 hours, until the fish turns opaque and is "cooked" by the citric acid.
- Mix the Salsa: In a separate bowl, combine 1 cup of our Very Verde Salsa with the diced avocado and chopped red onion. Add a dash of extra virgin olive oil if desired.
- Combine and Season: Drain off most of the lime juice from the fish. Add the fish to the salsa mixture and gently mix, being careful not to break the fish pieces. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
- Chill and Serve: Refrigerate the ceviche for an additional 30 minutes to let the flavors meld together. Serve cold, accompanied by tortilla chips or tostadas. Garnish with extra slices of avocado, if desired.
