I have made this several times, always to raves. It is inexpensive compared to other seafood you can use but the results are still amazing.

Cook:

3 Hr

Ingredients

6 medium
tilapia fillets (i use frozen ones and they work fine)
1 small
red onion diced
1 medium
carrot, finely diced
1 small
cucumber, seeds removed, finely diced
1 large
tomato, seeds chopped
1 bunch
cilantro, chopped
4 medium
limes
2 large
lemons
salt to taste
pepper to taste
1-2 medium
jalapenos, finely diced
1 pkg
tortilla chips

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Dice tilapia into small chunks, place in ziploc bag, and squeeze 2 limes and all lemons, along with some salt and pepper into bag.
2
Thoroughly massage juice with fish chunks and then refrigerate. Keep turning/massaging fish every half hour or so for about 3 hours. This is how you are "cooking" the fish.
3
Chop/dice all vegetables/herbs and set aside, waiting for fish to "cook"
4
Once fish is ready, strain the juice out and then combine with the vegetables/herbs.
5
Once mixed, squeeze in remaining two limes and then add more salt/pepper to taste.
6
Refrigerate until serving. Serve with crisp, fresh tortilla chips. Keeps for only about a day so eat up!
