Howdy! I’m Cassandra, the blogger behind Fed & Fit, dropping in to share one of my most favorite dishes of all time, Ceviche Verde. Ceviche Verde, or “green” ceviche, is a light, flavorful, restaurant-quality dish you can easily prepare at home. The fish in ceviche is cooked by way of an acidic chemical reaction, provided by the lime juice in this recipe, instead of heat.
This Ceviche Verde gets its name from the mixture of fresh green tomatillos, avocado, lime, jalapeño and fresh cilantro. I chose a flash-frozen halibut for this recipe, but you may use any sushi-grade or flash-frozen white fish you like.
Serve it up with a batch of Paleo Plantain Chips or wrap it in big velvety butter lettuce leaves. Your family and friends will be blown away.
