Corn tortillas

Canola oil, for cooking



1 lb fresh fish, such as halibut, diced into about ½-inch pieces

2 ripe Roma tomatoes, diced

1/2 cup chopped cilantro

1 small red birds’ eye chili, seeded and minced (optional)

1/2 cup fresh lime juice

salt to taste


salsa verde

diced avocado

julienned radishes

fresh cilantro

lime wedges


1Heat about half an inch of oil in a heavy skillet or deep pot set over medium-high heat. When it’s hot, but not smoking (a scrap of bread or the edge of a tortilla should sizzle when dipped in), fry as many tortillas as you like until golden and crisp. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towel to absorb the excess oil, and season well with salt.

2To make the ceviche, in a large bowl combine the fish, tomato, cilantro and chili. Add a generous amount of lime juice and season well with salt. Let the mixture sit – the lime juice will “cook” the fish – for 10 minutes. Taste and add more lime juice, if you like.

3Serve the ceviche, using a slotted spoon to drain off excess liquid, on the crisp tostadas, topped with salsa verde, avocado, radishes, cilantro and lime wedges to squeeze over it all.

4Serves 8.
