Ceviche made with fresh, raw tuna chunks. Great as an appetizer or side dish. I learned this one from my grandparents and found it to be a winner among my college buddies.

This is a fantastic appetizer for the sashimi tuna lover. I served in clear martini glasses to showcase the beautiful colors and garnished with avocado slices and asian rice crackers. Read More

I don't know what happened. I love ceviche and don't mind the raw tuna but this didn't turn out great for me. Maybe marinating it overnight was too long. The texture of everything didn't turn out great. I liked my friend's ceviche better that used fresh cooked shrimp. Read More

It was delicious but we had to double if not triple the amount of soy sauce. Being from Louisiana we are a little numb to spice but we couldn't taste the jalapeño at all. we probably would have doubled that as well if we had another. After all it was still very good. Read More

My husband caught a couple of bluefins so I decided to try this recipe... absolutely delicious! I added chopped tomatoes and chopped cilantro before serving which gave it a different twist in flavor. I'll send the hubby back out to fish for more bluefin! Read More

I added fresh diced avocado, some fresh lime juice & cilantro just before serving. This was a hit, even in Minnesota with a "non-sushi" crowd. Read More
