Fish Ceviche with Coconut Milk and Ginger by Chef Fabiola of Luna

Ingredients (Serves 4-6 as an appetizer)

  • 1/2 cup red onion, very thinly sliced
  • 1 garlic clove, chopped
  • 1/2 fresh jalapeno, seeded and minced
  • 1 tsp fresh ginger root, finely grated
  • 1/2 to 3/4 cup freshly squeezed lime juice (3-5 limes)
  • 1 cup unsweetened coconut milk
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1lb fresh firm, white-fleshed fish (mahi mahi, snapper, corvina, escolar) cut into broad slices about 1/4-inch thick, sashimi grade
  • 1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
  • 2 tbs lemon basil, chopped
  • 1 tsp lemon caviar

Directions
Place the sliced onion in a bowl of generously salted water to soak (to remove bitterness). Place the garlic, jalapeno, ginger root, lime juice and coconut milk in a blender and puree until smooth. In a large bowl, toss the pureed mixture with the fish slices. Stir to incorporate, cover and chill for 30-45 minutes.

Drain the onions and add them along with the cilantro and lemon basil to the ceviche. Taste and adjust the salt and lime, add more if necessary. Serve on a small bowl. Garnish with some cilantro and lemon basil leaves and a dollop of lemon caviar.
