Tilapia Ceviche

Prep time 24 mins
Cook time 5 mins
Other time 1 hr
Yield 3 servings (serving size: about 1 cup)
In traditional ceviche, the fish is "cooked" only by the acidity of the citrus juice in which it marinates; in this recipe, we liked the added flavor and texture given by cooking the fish first. Serve on lettuce leaves with baked tortilla chips or in warm flour tortillas as fish tacos.

Ingredients

  • Cooking spray
  • 1 pound tilapia fillets
  • 1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper (about 1/4 of 1 large)
  • 1/2 cup chopped tomato (about 1 small)
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped red onion (about 1/2 of 1 small)
  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
  • 1 ripe avocado, chopped (about 1/2 cup)
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
