This summery treat is great when scooped up with tortilla chips! Try it with another fish if you choose, though remember this dish is all about fresh, local seafood.
Time: 30 minutes plus overnight marinating
Ingredients:1 lb. fresh pickerel filets – cubed to roughly ¼” 1 cup lime juice 8 teaspoons Kosher salt 1 red onion – finely chopped 1 fleshy tomato (roma works well) – seeded and chopped 1 red bell pepper – seeded and chopped 1 jalapeno pepper – seeded and finely chopped 1 bunch fresh cilantro – leaves only – roughly chopped
Preparation:Combine fish with salt and lime juice. Mix well and refrigerate overnight, ensuring fish is completely covered with liquid. A freezer bag works well for this.
Drain the fish (do not rinse) then mix with the remaining ingredients shortly before serving.
