Mahi Mahi Ceviche

Rated as 4.92 out of 5 Stars

"This mahi mahi ceviche requires a little bit of knife work, but when you consider the seasonal advantage of not using the stove, and just how tasty this really is, I think it's all worthwhile. You can also use shrimp, scallops, swordfish, and snapper."

I used fresh albacore tuna I found on sale at Whole Foods for $8 a lb. I used a whole jalapeño, minced, about twice as much as called for, but thought it could have used more. A wonderful dish, ...

Made no changes, but I sliced everything a lot smaller than the pictures on here. Make sure you get a firm avocado so the chunks don't fall apart when you mix the ingredients.

Thank you, Chef John! This ceviche was delicious!

I followed the recipe and all ingredients and it came out good. I will try it again and add a little more orange. I felt there was something missing for a full body flavor.

Very good, great with Tostitos scoops.

This was fabulous. I prefer this type of fish to others I have tried. It's just right tender, but not chewy like scallops or shrimp tend to be. I cut down on the radish.

Civiche was bomb!

Awesome! Came out perfect! Our first attempt with cerviche :)

Loved it.. left out the orange...
