If you have some fresh fish available, I would highly recommend whipping up a quick ceviche! I tried ceviche for the first time in Costa Rica and loved it so much, I ordered it every time we went out to eat just to compare which little local restaurant made it the best. Well, they were all fabulous – and they all added their own little twists. Anyway, Funnyman and I enjoyed this with my Keto Mixed Seed Crackers for a delicious, fresh summer lunch. I also stirred through diced Pickled Avocado (in place of regular avocado) as I had just made a small batch, and it added a lovely flavour dimension. NOTE: If you prefer not to use limes, lemon juice will work equally well, but I love the classic combo of lime, coriander and chilli. Enjoy!

- 240 g (8.5 oz) fresh, skinless fish (I used cod)
- 2 limes, juice only
- 1/4 red onion, peeled and very finely chopped
- 1 small red chili, seeds removed and very finely chopped
- small handful coriander leaves, finely chopped
- 60 g (2.1 oz) Pickled Avocado, diced (Fats of Life recipe)
- sea salt flakes
- freshly ground black pepper
- 1 medium tomato, sliced
- Remove the fish from it's packaging and pat dry with kitchen paper. Use a sharp knife to cut into small cubes. Place into a shallow bowl and squeeze over the fresh juice from 2 limes. Set aside for 20 minutes while you prep the remaining ingredients. Make sure that the fish is covered by the juice. A gentle stir every now and then helps.
- After 20 minutes, add the red onion and chilies. By this time you will notice that the fish is no longer translucent and raw-looking, but has turned white. This is due to the acidity in the lime juice that actually 'cooks' the fish. Leave for 10 minutes.
- To serve, stir through the chopped coriander and diced Pickled Avocado. Season with sea salt flakes and freshly ground black pepper. Drain excess juice (or use a slotted spoon to serve) and plate up with tomatoes (sliced or diced) to add a sweet element.
- Serve with Keto Mixed Seed crackers (not included in the macros). Enjoy!
