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.

How to Make Tilapia Ceviche


  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!
