It may seem strange that I feel most safe buying sushi-grade tuna at a farmer’s market, where it’s been sitting in a cooler for however many hours, but I love being able to talk to the person who actually caught the fish. Serve this ceviche with great tortilla chips.

Albacore ceviche

Recipe for Albacore Ceviche
Recipe 132 of 365

Inspired by a Mexican ceviche I had at Toplobampo in Chicago, this is an easy, healthy way to use high-quality raw fish. Feel free to add chopped jalapeno, cilantro, or avocado, or substitute olive oil for the avocado oil.

TIME: 10 minutes
MAKES: 4 small appetizer servings

1/4 pound sushi-grade albacore tuna, cut into 1/2” cubes
1 tomato, finely chopped
2 scallions (green and white parts), finely chopped
2 tablespoons freshly-squeezed lime juice
1 tablespoon avocado oil
Salt and freshly ground pepper

Mix the tuna, tomato, scallions, lime juice, and oil in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper to taste, and serve immediately.
