Woodstock Farmer's Market

Fishes & Dishes Ceviche recipe was featured at the Woodstock Farmer's Market using fresh, local sushi grade Albacore tuna provided by Flying Fish Sustainable Seafood Market (located at 23rd and Hawthorne in Portland). We also served up Hawaiian Poke using the same wonderful fish. For those inquiring, here are the recipes!

In ceviche, the fish is “cooked” by the citrus juice. You can experiment with using different types of  seafood, just make sure it is of the freshest, best quality. If using    tuna, marinate for no more than 15 minutes or the fish will turn gray.

1 pound sea scallops, bay scallops, halibut or albacore tuna, best quality
1/2 cup lime juice
1/3 cup fresh orange juice 
1/2 fresh jalapeño, seeded and minced, optional
1/2 cup minced red onion
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 ripe avocado, diced
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro leaves
1 orange, peeled and diced
Tortilla chips

Cut the sea scallops against the grain into 1/4-inch-thick pieces (approximately 3 pieces per scallop), or cut fish into about 1” pieces.
Combine the lime and orange juice, the jalapeño, and the red onion in a medium, nonreactive bowl (glass or ceramic). Add the scallops and press down to submerge them in the juice. Refrigerate for a minimum of 6 to 8 hours, or until the scallops are opaque all the way through.
Add the salt and pepper to taste. Gently fold in the diced avocado, chopped cilantro, and diced orange. 
Scoop out servings with a slotted spoon to drain excess liquid. Serve with crisp tortilla chips.  Makes 4 to 6 servings
