 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

Ingredients:

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

Cilantro Chopped

1-2  Ripe Tomatoes ,Seeds removed, ¼” Dice

1 ripe (not overly) Avocado ¼” Dice

½ tsp Sea Salt  (to taste)

Green Napa Cabbage, Shredded

Tostada shells
