Ceviche tostadas

Corn tortillas
Canola oil, for cooking
Salt
Ceviche:
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
Toppings:
salsa verde
diced avocado
julienned radishes
fresh cilantro
lime wedges

1

Heat 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.

2

To 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.

3

Serve 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.

Serves 8.
