Ingredients
  • For the fish:
  • 12 ounces skinless grouper fillets
  • For the marinade/dressing:
  • 1/2 cup fresh-squeezed lime juice
  • 1 cup freshly squeezed grapefruit juice
  • 1/2 small red onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons coarsely chopped cilantro leaves
  • 1 jalapeno, minced
  • Kosher salt
  • For the salad:
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons minced red onion
  • 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro leaves
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly toasted and ground cumin
  • Kosher salt and ground black pepper
  • 1 cup jicama, peeled and sliced into matchstick size pieces
  • 1 avocado, peeled, pitted and diced into 1/4-inch pieces
Directions

First, thinly slice the fillets and then cut them into 3/4-inch bite-sized squares. Keep them very cold while you prepare the rest of the recipe.

Combine the ingredients for the marinade in a bowl. Set that bowl inside a larger one, filled with ice. Now prepare the salad.

In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, onion, cilantro, cumin, and salt and pepper. Then, in a larger chilled bowl, toss the vinaigrette with the avocado and jicama. Set aside.

Gently mix the grouper and the marinade/dressing and let stand for about 10 minutes. Into 4 chilled bowls, spoon the ceviche with its liquid. Serve the salad, family-style, and encourage the guests to top their ceviche with salad.

If you can get Cancha (Latin American corn nuts) and toast, they make a fantastic and authentic addition to this dish. I sometimes like to drizzle coconut milk onto the citrus juices. Or, I season the dish with tiny dots of soy sauce and sesame oil.
