Seviche is a refreshing Latin American inspired appetizer. The lime juice “cooks” the fish; besides adding a wonderful flavor, it also makes it firm and opaque.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups Lime juice 500 mL
  • 1 Green pepper, seeded & diced
  • 3 Tomatoes, ripe, medium sized, dice (peel and seed optional)
  • 1/3 cup Olive oil 75 mL
  • ¼ cup White vinegar 60 mL
  • 3 tbsp. Chopped fresh parsley OR 1 ½ tsp. (7 mL) dried 45 mL
  • 1 tbsp. Chopped fresh oregano OR ½ tsp. (2 mL) dried 15 mL
  • ¾ tsp. Salt 3 mL
  • ½ tsp. Black pepper 2 mL
  • 1 tsp. Tabasco sauce 5 mL
  • 5 tbsp. White sugar 75 mL
  • 1 Garlic clove, finely diced
