Method

Ceviche 4 Steps

  • Step 1

    Dice fish and place into a large glass or non-metal mixing bowl. Squeeze 1 to 1 1/4 cups lime juice from 6 limes over fish. Stir to combine then cover and marinate in the refrigerator (marinate 1 1/2 to 2 hours or until no longer translucent, stirring halfway through).

  • Step 2

    Chop avocado, tomatoes, red onion, jalapeño and cilantro.

  • Step 3

    When fish is finished marinating, add avocado, tomato, red onion, jalapeño and cilantro to the bowl.

  • Step 4

    Add 1/4 teaspoon black pepper and gently stir to combine. Lastly, stir in 1 cup Clamato juice, mixing just to combine. Serve with prepared tostones.

Tostones  4 Steps

  • Step 1

    Peel the plantains by making a vertical cut through the skin and peeling it back with your hands or the edge of a spoon (see video).

  • Step 2

    Cut the plantains into 1-inch thick pieces. Heat a layer of oil in a heavy-bottomed pan.

  • Step 3

    Fry the plantains in batches. When the plantains are starting to turn light golden brown, remove from the oil and transfer to a plate lined with paper towels. Smash each piece with the back of a wooden spoon -- this gives you a flatter shape with rougher edges. Return to the frying pan and fry for an additional 4-5 minutes or until golden brown and crispy. Transfer back to a paper towel lined plate to drain excess oil.

  • Step 4

    Sprinkle with sea salt and serve immediately with ceviche.
