5-Ingredient Ceviche – Ingrid Nilsen

Ceviche is mainly a seafood dish that originated from Peru. It can be served as a main dish or as an appetizer. Typically, it is a mixture of raw fish “cooked” in lemon or lime juice. It’s a refreshing food especially during summer that is prepared in a very quick and easy manner.


• 3-4 tilapia fillets (finely diced)
• 6-8 large limes
• 1 avocado (thinly sliced)
• 1/2 cup onion (finely chopped)
• 1/4 cup cilantro leaves (chopped)
• Salt
• Pepper


Place the finely diced Tilapia fillets on a bowl.
Squeeze 6-8 limes for the juice.
Soak the fish with the lime juice.
Cover with transparent plastic wrap.
Place in the fridge for 10-15 minutes or until the fish is mostly white.

After 10-15 minutes, remove the soaked fish from the fridge.
Tightly squeeze the diced fish fillets to get the lime juice out.
Transfer to a mixing bowl.
Add all other ingredients.
Sprinkle salt and pepper to taste.
