A classic appetizer that is simple and amazing. The seafood needs to be as fresh as possible, as the "cooking" is done only by the lime juice.

  • Yields: 4 servings

Ingredients

3/4 cup lime juice, freshly squeezed

2 garlic cloves, peeled and minced

2 fresh jalapeño peppers, sliced

1 tbsp fresh oregano leaves, minced

1/4 cup cilantro leaves, minced

1 tsp kosher salt

1 lb very fresh fish fillets, shrimp, sea scallops or calamari

Directions

1Mix together all ingredients. Use to marinate 1 pound of fresh fish fillets, cut into 1/2 inch cubes; or peeled tail-less shrimp, scallops (1/4 if large) or calamari cut into 1/4 inch rounds.

2Marinate the seafood in the refrigerator until "cooked", firm and opaque, about 2-3 hours. Drain well and reserve.

3To Serve as an Appetizer: Toss seviche seafood with 2 tablespoons olive oil, 1 cup salsa fresca and 1 diced firm-ripe avocado. Serve with crisp tortilla chips or tostada bases, extra lime wedges and cilantro.

You can marinate the seafood up to a day in advance. Drain well and then toss in the salsa fresca and avocado right before you serve it.
