Season the sea bream with flaked sea salt, piment d'espelette and black pepper in a bowl. Add the chile, diced radishes, lemon juice and lime juice. Let this marinate for 5 minutes at room temperature. Check the seasoning and adjust the salt to your taste.
Scoop the ceviche into bowls and garnish with the sliced radishes, little spoonfuls of Chili Puree, corn nuts and cilantro and serve.
Saute the carrot, celery and onion in the olive oil over low heat until the onions are translucent. Add the garlic and red chiles and saute for 1 minute. Deglaze the pan with the lime juice and add the tomato paste, cumin, coriander and cayenne; stir. Add enough water to just cover the ingredients. Bring to a simmer and cook until the carrots are soft.
Puree everything in a blender and pass through a strainer to remove larger pieces.
When blending hot liquid, first let it cool for five minutes or so, then transfer it to a blender, filling only halfway. Put the lid on, leaving one corner open. Cover the lid with a kitchen towel to catch splatters, and pulse until smooth.
