Introduction: Tilapia Ceviche

Picture of Tilapia Ceviche

I am a vegetarian now and have been for the last 4 years but before that I was a pescatarian which means I wouldn't eat most meats except fish. I used to love fish and this dish was one of my favorites. My little sister still eats fish and begged me to make this for her so I did. This recipe is pretty easy and most of the time that it takes to make ceviche it is just sitting in the refrigerator so not a lot of work is involved. This recipe is so refreshing and great for summer! I hope everyone enjoys!

Step 1: Ingrideints and Materials

2 pounds of tilapia
Enough limes to cover the fish in lime juice. I used 21 limes for 2 pounds of tilapia. I am sure that if you wanted to use lemons instead that 11 would be enough.
1/2 clove of garlic

Garlic press
Citrus Juicer

Step 2: Curing the Tilapia

Cut the tilapia into tiny little squares and place in a bowl. Cut and juice all of the limes. Cover all of the tilapia in lime juice and keep it in the refrigerator for 45 minutes or until the fish becomes white.

Step 3: Finishing
