Issue 122: Omega-3s for All!

Fresh Ceviche
Serves 6 

Ingredients:
6 fresh wild salmon or tuna fillets
3 cups fresh lime juice
1 cup fresh-squeezed orange juice
6 organic Roma tomatoes, chopped
1 white onion, chopped
¾ cup of pitted green olives
2 jalapeño peppers
4 sprigs of cilantro
1 cup of organic catsup
4 Tablespoons of raw apple cider vinegar
freshly ground pepper and sea salt, to taste
3 avocados, sliced (for topping)

Directions:
Cut the salmon or tuna fillets into small cubes and place them in a large bowl. Pour 2 cups of the lime juice over the fish. Cover and let stand in the refrigerator for two hours. While the fish is in the refrigerator, chop up tomatoes, onion, green olives, jalapeño peppers and cilantro. Set aside.

After two hours, take the fish out and rinse it well. Place the fish in a clean bowl. Add the chopped ingredients and mix well. Add the remaining lime juice and the orange juice. Mix well. Add the apple cider vinegar, catsup, and pepper and salt. Mix well and place back in the refrigerator for about an hour. After an hour, serve the ceviche in a serving bowl or individual bowls. Top with sliced avocados and serve with organic flaxseed crackers for additional omega-3s. (Note: Serve and eat immediately. Fish should not remain at room temperature for longer than 15 minutes.)

Directions:
Mix the mango, red onion, red bell pepper, cilantro, vinegar, olive oil and flaxseed oil in a large bowl. Sprinkle with sea salt and pepper, to taste.
