Tilapia Ceviche

  • Cut tilapia into small cubes and set aside in a plastic bowl. Cut all limes reserving half of a lime for the guacamole.

  • While tilapia is marinating in the lime juice, cut the tomatoes, cucumber, onion, jalapeños, scallions, cilantro and garlic. 
  • Add and mix all to tilapia with salt to taste. Refrigerate again for another hour until tilapia is cooked and flavors are well blended.

Simple Guacamole

  • Cut avocados lengthwise to expose pit. With a knife, gently tap pit and twist to remove it.
