Halibut Ceviche - 10/14/2002

1 lb. halibut
4 Tbl. lime juice
4 Tbl. lemon juice
2 Tbl. tomato juice
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
1/2 cup diced tomato
1/4 cup diced tomatillo
1 1/2 tsp. jalapeno
2 Tbl. cilantro
1 avocado
1 Tbl. olive oil
1/8 tsp.
Tabasco sauce

Cut the halibut into 1" pieces. Mix lime juice, lemon juice and tomato juice. Add salt and pepper. Add halibut and refrigerate at least 5 hours, but no more than 12 hours. The acid from the juices will "cook" the halibut.

Strain the halibut to remove the juices and toss in a bowl with tomato, tomatillo, jalapeno, cilantro, avocado, olive oil and Tabasco sauce. Garnish with cilantro sprigs and lime wedges. Serve with tortilla chips. Serves 4.
