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, easy to prepare, can make it several hours before serving except for mixing the last parts in. We loved it! Read More

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. Read More

We liked this recipe. My first time making ceviche. It was just a little too acidic for my taste otherwise it was very tasty. I made this pretty much exactly as directed. I did drain most of the lime/lemon juice before mixing the rest of the ingredients. I also used an unripe or hard avocado so it would hold up better. Read More
