Tuna Ceviche

Ceviche is easier to make than you’d think. The two main ingredients are fresh fish (sushi grade) and lime juice. Don’t let raw fish scare you from trying this recipe. The acid in the lime juice cooks the fish without using heat (i.e, heat from stovetop, oven or grill). Tuna along with fresh vegetables, Thai chili peppers, and lime juice gives this dish a light, citrus zing. Serve as an appetizer or side dish.

    Thanks, Nancy! Ceviche is in my top 10 favorite foods too because you can always put different fresh seafood in there. Let me know how the tuna ceviche turns out when you get the chance to make it. I want some of your Polish sausage and chorizo tacos with potatoes!! I make salsa at a minimum of once a month ๐Ÿ™‚
