Ahi Tuna & Avocado Ceviche

Recipe by Michelle Lee
Whip up this very easy, cool and refreshing tuna-avocado ceviche as a quick late afternoon snack! Ceviche is a classic Latin American seafood dish of raw fish “cured” in citrus juice. As well as flavoring the fish, the citrus juice firms the tuna flesh and turns it opaque, giving it the appearance and texture of being cooked. The longer you keep the tuna in the citrus juice before you enjoy it, the longer it will seem to have been cooked. Feel free to experiment with timing, anywhere from no marinade time (just stir and serve) to a maximum of one hour in the refrigerator. Because Vital Choice Wild Yellowfin Tuna is sushi-grade and wonderfully pristine, you can feel very confident serving this raw fish dish. This ceviche dish is also excellent on tortilla chips, which add a bit of salt to further balance its acidity and richness.
Yield: Serves 6-8
Total Time: 30 min
Prep: 10 min
Cook: 20 min
Additional:
Ingredients
¼ small red onion
3 fresh limes
½ jalapeno pepper
2 small ripe avocados
¼ cup fresh cilantro
Kosher salt, to taste
Small endive or lettuce leaves for serving (or tortilla chips)
Preparation
1.  Cut the yellowfin tuna steaks into ½-inch cubes and refrigerate in a covered glass bowl; set aside in refrigerator.
2.  Dice the red onion and juice the limes. Add to the yellowfin cubes, cover and refrigerate, stirring once, for 10 to 20 minutes.
3.  As the tuna marinates, mince the jalapeño pepper. For mild ceviche, discard all of the jalapeño seeds before mincing. For a bit more heat, use some or all of the seeds.
4.  Cut the avocado into ½-inch pieces. Roughly chop the cilantro. Combine the jalapeño, avocado and cilantro, season to taste with salt, and stir into the tuna after it marinates.
5.  Rinse and separate the endive or lettuce leaves to create small “boats.” Fill each leaf (or chip) with a tablespoon of ceviche and serve immediately.
