Ceviche is one of my favorite foods.  Haven't tried it with fresh water fish, but since you (I) add lots of salt anyway, guess it doesn't really matter.  Never tried it with the juices... we put ours on white rice.  Sooo good!

I don't really like fish, but  tried this recipe from Food Network and it was pretty tasty.

  • 2 pounds tilapia fillets, finely diced* see Cook's Note
  • 1 cup lime juice (about 8 large limes)
  • 1/2 cup seeded chopped tomato
  • 1/2 cucumber, peeled, seeded and finely diced
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro leaves
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup clam-tomato juice (recommended: Clamato), optional
  • 1 tablespoon bottled hot sauce (recommended: Huichol), optional
  • 1 serrano chile, optional
  • Grilled Tostadas, recipe follows, or 6 purchased tostadas
  • Mayonnaise, for spreading
  • 1 avocado, halved, pitted, peeled, and thinly sliced
  • 1 lime, cut into wedges


Put the tilapia in a medium bowl. Pour the lime juice over the fish and mix gently to combine. Cover with plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator until the fish is white throughout, about 15 to 20 minutes.

Remove from the refrigerator and drain off the lime juice, gently squeezing the fish with your hands. Discard the lime juice. Add the tomato, cucumber, onion, and cilantro. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Add the clam-tomato juice and the hot sauce and chile, if using.

Spread the tostadas generously with mayonnaise and top with the ceviche. Arrange the avocado slices on top of the ceviche and serve immediately with the lime wedges alongside.

Caldo Verde
by John Villa
Recipe adapted by Irene Sax
Serves 6 to 8

Considered by many to be Portugal’s national dish, caldo verde is found everywhere — in the dining rooms of Lisbon’s most luxurious hotels to the humblest of country homes. It’s a versatile dish: Serve it as a one-course meal at lunch or as a light supper in the evening. What’s crucial when preparing it is that the kale is cut into extremely fine slices; that’s what creates the soup’s distinctive character.—John Villa

convert Ingredients
1/4 cup olive oil
1 large Spanish onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
10 ounces chouriço, diced
6 medium potatoes, peeled and diced
8 cups cold water
1 pound kale or collard greens, cut into very fine julienne
Salt and pepper to taste

1. In a large pot, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onions and cook until they are translucent. Add the garlic and half the chouriço and cook for 2 minutes. Add the potatoes, cover everything with the water, bring to a boil and lower the heat, simmering until the potatoes are almost done, about 15 minutes.

2. When the soup is cool enough to handle, purée it in the food processor and return to the pot. Add the greens, bring everything back to a boil and simmer for 2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper, ladle into bowls, and garnish with the remaining cubes of chouriço.
