Mexican Ceviche Yellowtail Tostadas

March 23, 2015


Baja Mexican Ceviche

If you have yellowtail, and you love Mexican ceviche, then

this Baja recipe is for you. Just make sure you use the

freshest herbs, vegetables and limes, the freshest yellowtail,

and a few crunchy tostadas. Because that's how they're make

in Baja!


The yellowtail I used for my Baja Mexican ceviche was caught 

last Super Bowl Sunday. That day, big schools of yellowtails started

sweeping through by mid-afternoon. The hook-ups were happening

like popcorn in blistering oil. It was way more fun than watching any

NFL halftime show.


Give this simple Baja recipe a try. Aside from the yellowtail, you can

get everything you need at your local Mexican market. Make sure

your friends and family are hungry, because they’re going to

love this dish.

Mexican Baja Ceviche (6 servings)

2 pounds yellowtail, cut into 1/2-in cubes

12 medium size limes (or lemons)

1/2 of a red onion (julienned)

1 bundle cilantro

5-6 small red/yellow sweet peppers (julienned)

1-2 serrano peppers

Kosher Salt

Cracked Black pepper

1 bag tostada shells

Making The Mexican Baja Ceviche

1.  Cut and chop the yellowtail into 1/4" cubes pieces. Liberally

salt the fish, and set aside in a plastic tupper ware container.

2.  Juice approximately 12 fresh limes or lemons, and pour over

the chopped yellowtail. Make sure all your fish is covered with the lime juice.

Refrigerate for 2-3 hours.

3.  In a separate bowl, add julienned whole red onion and sweet peppers.

Add rough chopped cilantro and finely chopped serrano pepper. Add a pinch

of salt and pepper to taste.

4.  Remove yellowtail from refrigerator and strain out all the lime

juice. Add yellowtail to cut vegetables in a bowl and toss ingredients together.

Add salt and pepper, check for saltiness, add more if necessary.

5.  With a large serving spoon, ladle ceviche mixture onto the Mexican tostada

shells. Serve immediately.
