Tilapia Ceviche

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.
