Pacific Halibut Ceviche with Avocado

Directions

  1. Combine halibut, lime and lemon juice, jalapeño, and salt in a glass bowl. Mix well, making sure fish is completely coated with citrus juice (the acid from the citrus cooks the fish).
  2. Place in refrigerator for 30 minutes to chill, then add corn, onion, and tomatoes, and chill for at least another 90 minutes or up to 4 hours.
  3. Fold in cilantro and serve in bowls garnished with avocado slices. Serve with tortilla chips.
