Ceviche Fish Tacos with Avocado and Lime

  • ACTIVE: 10 MIN
  • SERVINGS: Makes 8 small tacos

For these extra refreshing tacos, fish gets marinated in a mixture of tomatoes, citrus juices and chiles. The citrusy marinade turns the fish opaque, cooking the fish without any heat.

Slideshow: Ceviche Recipes

  1. 1 cup diced tomatoes
  2. 2 Fresno chiles, halved, seeded and thinly sliced
  3. 1 small serrano chile pepper, halved, seeded and minced
  4. 2 scallions, thinly sliced
  5. 1/4 cup finely chopped cilantro
  6. Juice of 4 limes
  7. Juice of 1 lemon
  8. 2 teaspoons honey
  9. Sea salt
  10. 1 pound skinless striped bass or other firm white fish fillets, cut into 1/2-inch dice
  11. Eight 6-inch corn tortillas
  12. 2 avocados, thinly sliced
  13. 1 lime, cut into eight wedges, for serving
  1. In a large bowl, toss the tomatoes with the Fresno and Serrano chiles, the scallions, cilantro, lime and lemon juice, honey and 2 teaspoons sea salt. Add the fish to the marinade and stir until coated. Cover and refrigerate the fish for at least 1 hour and up to 4 hours, stirring every 20 minutes, until the fish is soft and opaque but not falling apart. Season the ceviche with more salt if necessary.
  2. On a microwave-safe plate, warm the tortillas at high power for 30 seconds, until soft and pliable. Arrange the avocado slices on the tortillas and top with the ceviche. Fold the tortilla over the filling and serve right away with lime wedges.
