Mahimahi and Radicchio "Ceviche" Recipe

Ingredients

  • 2 ½ pounds mahimahi fillets
  • 10 limes    
  • 1 scotch bonnet
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 head radicchio, julienned
  • 1 fennel, julienned
  • ½ large red onion, julienned
  • 3 clementines or tangerines, segmented
  • ½ cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • Micro cilantro, for garnish
  • 3 corn tortillas, julienned and fried

Chef Tiffany Derry prepared what she calls more of an “Asian-style sashimi” than a typical mahi-mahi ceviche at the kick-off dinner for the 2011 St. Croix Food & Wine Experience. Bright and refreshing with a hint of heat, this dish was served with a dry rosé and makes for a perfect first course.

Directions

Slice the fish on a bias sashimi style. Squeeze the limes over the fish and add salt and pepper. Add the radicchio, fennel, red onions, and clementine segments in a mixing bowl, and then season with salt and pepper, and olive oil and set aside.

To serve, lay 4 slices of fish on a plate and a place small amount of salad atop of fish. Garnish with the micro cilantro and olive oil and then top with the fried tortilla chips.
