Red Snapper Ceviche

  • Active Time 10m
  • Total Time 10m

Serves 6

I suggest serving the ceviche with plantain or boniato chips.


  • 1 pound red snapper filet
  • 3/4 cup lime juice
  • 3/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1/2 medium Scotch bonnet chile, seeded and diced
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 cup diced avocado
  • 1 cup diced tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup diced shallot
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper



Cut the filets into even diced pieces about

1 inch long and 1/2 inch wide. It is important to prepare an even cut so they "cook" evenly and the acid in the citrus juices penetrate the finished pieces evenly.


In a large stainless steel bowl, marinate the snapper in the lime and lemon juices. Cover and let sit for one hour. Add the scotch bonnet chile, cilantro, avocado, tomato, shallots, salt and pepper.

Mix well, cover and refrigerate for one hour before serving.
