Tuna Ceviche | Full of Freshness and Flavour |

Ceviche of Tuna

 

Peruvian food is having its moment and can be found all over the world.  From traditional menus to hip and trendy fusion, Tuna Ceviche is light, fresh, packed with flavour and so easy to make.

On a recent trip to Miami, Rick took us to a Peruvian favourite of his located in downtown Miami. Cvi.che 105 offers a trendy Peruvian experience and has plenty of fresh Tuna Ceviche to go around. It was a first time for us and we loved it!

Serve with plenty of nachos for scooping and cooling Guacamole | Kitchen Guac from Mexico Border |. Arriba!

If you like Sushi you will love this easy home made dish. Fresh Tuna is readily available but do make sure it very fresh. Ask you fishmonger for advise.

Peruvian food is having its moment and can be found all over the world. Tuna Ceviche is light, fresh, packed with flavour and so easy to make.

Ingredients

  • ⅓ C (80 ml) lime juice
  • 1 Tbsp (15 ml) olive oil
  • ½ small red onion, finely chopped
  • 1 Tbsp (15 ml) chives, finely chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
  • 1 small red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
  • sea salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 500 g fresh tuna, diced into small blocks

Instructions

1

In a large mixing bowl, add all the ingredients except for the tuna.

2

Mix well to combine.

3

Just before you are ready to serve, add the tuna to the mixture and toss well to coat with liquid.

4

Leave the tuna to stand for 8-10 minutes so that the acid in the lime juice can cure the fish.

5

When the tuna begins to turn opaque it’s ready to go.

Wine Matching

Tuna Ceviche is a light and refreshing appetiser. It needs a light and refreshing wine. We chose a Sacchetto Col de L’Utia Prosecco Brut 2018.

Crisper and creamier than Cava, with a softer fizz than Champagne, this luxury drop has all the melt-in-the-mouth quality you’d expect from a world-famous winemaker. It’s full of fruit and delicate refreshing bubbles. Perfect for parties, weddings, or just making your Friday night fish and chip supper sing. Available from Naked Wines.
