CEVICHE RECIPE by my friend, Chef Christopher Miller
aka, the Galley Gourmet, SB
“It goes without saying that you should use only the freshest seafood available for this recipe. Almost any type of fish can be used provided it is fairly firm and free of connective fibers and skin. We chose Halibut for this batch based on it’s being locally and freshly caught, and just couldn’t help but throw a few wild caught shrimp in for good measure”. Chef Christopher Miller
2 pounds of Halibut (or similar) Filet ¼” cubes
12 Shrimp Blanched, Peeled, Deveined, and cut in ¼“ Sections
Juice from 2 limes, 2 lemons, & 2 Navel Oranges
1 Medium Red Onion, Diced
2 Scallions ¼” Slices
1-2 Serrano Chilis (to taste) Diced small
1-2 Ripe Tomatoes ,Seeds removed, ¼” Dice
1 ripe (not overly) Avocado ¼” Dice
½ tsp Sea Salt (to taste)

In a large mixing bowl combine citrus juices, red onions, scallions, cilantro, and Serrano chilis, and sea salt.
Add the halibut and shrimp to this mixture and toss well. Allow seafood to marinate (cook) for a minimum of 3-4 hrs.
