Yep, summer is definitely here! It`s hot, it`s humid, time to start watching the summer storms & saying a little prayer that they go west out to sea. But you know, it`s also a pretty special time of year. A few less people crowding the surf line up, a little more time to be there, summer rates on the golf course & the fishing is really heating up. Oh, & before I forget it`s mango season! The trees are loaded! So between the fishing & the mango`s I thought I`d share a pretty fantastic warm weather recipe with you. This simple man`s plan to healthier eating is coming to you with Fresh Tuna, Avocado & Mango Ceviche. This is super healthy & fresh, a little sweet, a little spice & a whole lotta delicious! Ready in about 10 minutes & there`s no need to heat up the kitchen. No cooking needed! What`s not to like! This is really the perfect summer appetizer or lite lunch!
Here`s what you`ll need for your Fresh Tuna, Avocado & Mango Ceviche:
1 lb sushi grade tuna- small dice
1 lg mango- small dice
1 avocado- small dice
1/4 small red onion- very small dice
1-2 jalapeño or serrano chiles seeded & deveined- very small dice
1/2 red bell pepper- very small dice
1/2 bunch cilantro chopped
1 lime juiced
pinch of salt
A couple of my neighborhood entrepreneurs with their fresh mangos for sale. Seriously, how could you not buy from these two. Especially when they`re 30 yards from your door.Start with the tuna. Cut into about a half an inch dice. Refrigerate while you do your other prep. Dice the mango & avocado. Seed & devein the chiles. You`re going to give a small dice to the chiles, bell pepper & red onion. Chop the cilantro.Everything into a mixing bowl. Squeeze the lime juice over the top & add a touch of salt.Give a gentle mix until everything is combined. You see the change in color. That`s the reaction the tuna is having with the lime juice. It`s actually cooking chemically, obviously not by heat. So that`s it. You`re ready to enjoy immediately or put in the fridge for later. How easy was that. I`m obviously serving this with cucumber rounds but tortilla chips or crisped wontons are a fantastic alternative.You can`t tell me this doesn`t look amazing!
Enjoy your Fresh Tuna, Avocado & Mango Ceviche!! You`re going to be happy to have this in your life!
