Seviche (seh-VEE-che) is a delicious Latin American appetizer of super-fresh, raw fish marinated in citrus juice.

Ingredients

uncooked tilapia fillet(s)

¾ pound(s), sole, or flounder fillets, cut into 1⁄4-inch piece

fresh lime juice

¼ cup(s)

grape tomatoes

12 medium, coarsely chopped

orange(s)

1 medium, peeled and diced

uncooked red onion(s)

¼ cup(s), sliced, finely chopped

fresh parsley

2 Tbsp, fresh, chopped

table salt

½ tsp

cayenne pepper

tsp

endive

1 head(s), small, (12 leaves)

Instructions

  1. Combine the tilapia and lime juice in a medium bowl; toss to coat and set aside while preparing the other ingredients. Add the tomatoes, orange, onion, parsley, salt, and cayenne. Refrigerate, covered, about 10 minutes.
  2. Arrange the Belgian endive leaves on a platter. Spoon the seviche evenly (scant 1⁄4 cup) in the center of each leaf. Serve at once. Yields 3 pieces per serving.

Notes

The fish usually marinates for about 2 hours, but 10 minutes of marinating for this main dish is fine. Toss the fish with the lime juice first thing so it has a chance to turn opaque and use thin fillets such as tilapia, sole, or flounder and cut into small dice so the fish marinates quickly.
