Juice of 1 lime
1/2 tsp finely grated ginger
1/2 red chile, finely chopped (or less, to your taste)
1/4 small red onion, thinly sliced
4 oz. boneless, skinless haddock, striped bass, or flounder fillet
1 small ripe tomato, seeded and diced
5 small radishes, very thinly sliced
Handful of cilantro leaves
How to Make It
In a bowl, combine the lime juice with the ginger, red chile, a generous pinch of salt, and the red onion. Set aside for 10 minutes.
Cut the fish fillet into thin slices, add to the bowl, and leave for 5-10 minutes, depending on the texture desired (the longer you leave the fish in the lime juice, the more it will "cook" the fish). Toss quickly with the tomato, sliced radish, and cilantro, and then pile on a plate, and serve immediately.
