You can use a white fish. In Panama and Costa Rica, the fish Corvina is used. I use tilapia.

Prep:

45 Min

Cook:

8 Hr

Ingredients

4 to 5
nice sized fillet of tillapia or white fish
12
juice of fresh lime (must be fresh)
1 medium
sweet onion chopped finely
1/2 c
chopped finely celery
1
large jalapeno pepper chopped finely

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Squeeze the juice of the limes and set aside.
2
Cut fish into very small pieces and add salt.
3
Place fish into a glass bowl and add lime juice. ( I always use a glass container because metal bowls might give the fish a different tast because of the lime juice. ) COVER THE BOWL AND LET IT SIT OVERNIGHT IN THE REFRIGERATOR. You will notice that the fish will become a real white color after it has COOKED in the lemon juice.
4
3 hours before serving, finely chop celery, onion and jalapeno peppers and add to the fish and lemon juice. Mix well and serve with saltine crackers.
5
In Costa Rica, seafood cocktail sauce is missed with the fish and other ingredients. My family loves it both ways like it both ways.
