Sea Bass Ceviche in beautiful Cabo

A colorful way for a refreshing fish cocktail made with sea bass, vegetables and serrano peppers! One of my favorites!  It is a family recipe inspired by the three Mexican-flag colors, red, white and green. “Never ketchup, please.”

In our home in Acapulco, my grandmother made this recipe for years ~ it is her creation, however, some of us cousins added a little more to raise it a little notch to perfection.

The key ingredients are the freshest available fish.


2 pounds tomato, firm. (You can substitute for red peppers)

2 cups of chopped onions

1 tablespoon of mince garlic

1 cup green olives chopped

1 cup of pickled jalapenos

1 teaspoon black pepper

1 teaspoon of salt

½ teaspoon of oregano (dry)

2 bay leaves

½ cup chopped cilantro

6 ounces fresh orange Juice

4 ounces lime juice

½ cup Olive oil

2 pounds fresh white fish, tilapia or halibut


Peal and chopped tomatoes. Combine in a bowl with onions and garlic, olives, jalapenos and pepper, one teaspoon of salt, oregano, bay leaves, cilantro and orange juice. Refrigerate the sauce of 2 to 3 hours. To prepare the fish, boil the water with a teaspoon of salt. Remove from fire and add the fish fillets, slightly cooking for 30 to 45 seconds. Drain and cool. Combine fish in a bowl with lime juice for 30 minutes, drain. Combine fish with a very cold sauce. Add the olive oil. Marinate the ceviche in the refrigerator, covered 2 to 4 hours before serving.

Garnish with slice avocado

Serves 6 to 8

Also great as an appetizer.
