Ingredients For Seabass Ceviche

1/2 red onion
600g fresh seabass fillet (skin off) from Walter Purkis & Sons
1 large sweet potato (cooked and cut into small cubes)
Handful of toasted chulpe corn (alternatively salted, roasted Turkish corn snack)
Fresh coriander roughly chopped

Tiger milk

6-8 limes
1 red chilli
Fresh coriander
Small piece of ginger (5mm)
1 garlic clove
Pinch of salt
(passionfruit optional)

To Make The Tiger Milk

Squeeze all the lime juice in a bowl. Add garlic clove (cut into half) and ginger root (peeled and cut into half), salt, roughly chopped chilli (no seeds) and a few sprigs of coriander. Let it infuse for 5 minutes. Strain and keep in fridge for up to 3-4 hours.

Cooking Method For The Seabass Ceviche

Chop seabass into bite sized chunks. Cut sweet potato into small even cubes and cook in salted water until soft. (don’t overcook) Finely slice the red onion, soak in ice cold water for 5 minutes then drain and dry (this makes it milder and keeps its crunch).

Just before serving: Mix seabass with tiger milk and let it infuse for about 2-3 minutes. This “cooks” the fish. Add all the other ingredients: sweet potato, corn, red onion slices, coriander (few pieces of red chilli finely sliced if you like it spicy) and a juice of passionfruit if you want to make it more fruity. You can make it even prettier by adding some  micro-coriander or edible flowers.
