Smoked Fish Ceviche: Ceviche de Pescado Ahumado by Karen Hursh Graber © 2006

Although most commonly made with raw fish, ceviche, which originated in Peru and arrived via the Pacific coast of Mexico, is delicious prepared with smoked fish, and probably a bit more reassuring for those that have doubts about raw fish.


  • 1 pound smoked fish, such as mullet, sable or tuna, boned and shredded
  • 1 medium white onion, peeled and finely chopped
  • 1 medium carrot, peeled and shredded
  • 2 roma tomatoes, seeded and finely diced
  • 2 fresh jalapeños, seeded and finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • juice of 2-3 limes, or to taste
  • salt and pepper to taste


Combine all ingredients; allow to sit 1 hour to absorb flavors. Serve with tostadas and plenty of cold beer.

Serves 6-8 as an appetizer or snack.
