Mock Seafood Ceviche


Seafood ceviche is a popular dish in the Caribbean and coastal regions of Latin America. It’s a dish based around raw seafood cured in lime juice. Packed with protein from the seafood it’s also rich in vitamins including C and K. It’s a very tasty, light dish that’s bursting with zingy flavours and perfect for warm summer evenings.

This however isn’t a true seafood ceviche. It’s a mock ceviche. This means the seafood selection used is already pre-cooked. In my opinion cooked fish is safer, tastes better and has a more pleasant texture. Take a look below for ingredients, nutritional info and method.

There’s virtually no prep time involved with the mock seafood ceviche. It’s just a matter of very finely chopping your tomatoes, red onion, avacado, parsley and juicing your lime. Then it’s just mixing it all together and serving. By all means, if you’re feeling adventurous go for the real ceviche and cure the raw seafood mix in the lime juice. On a smaller scale this dish would also make a perfect starter for your guests at a dinner party or summer BBQ.
