• Quick and easy loadshedding ceviche

    It’s one hour before loadshedding, but supper’s not ready yet! We’ve got you covered with this no-cook ceviche with nachos. It’s quick, easy and romantic by candlelight.



    • avocado
    • 2 fish fillets (fresh tuna)
    • 2 limes
    • 2 tbsp olive oil
    • 1 garlic clove
    • 1 onion
    • 100 g cherry tomato
    • fresh coriander
    • fresh parsley
    • salt and pepper for seasoning



    Cut the fish into long strips then cut it into small cubes.

    Combine fish with tomato, onion, pepper and lime juice. Do not add salt (it draws water out of the fish), avocado (these get bashed around too much when tossing) or olive oil (this dilutes the acidity of the lime juice).

    Gently mix, then set aside for 5 minutes to let the lime “cook” the fish.

    Add olive oil, avocado, fresh herbs, salt,  then gently mix.

    Serve immediately.

    FOOD TEAM TIP: You can use frozen fillets of a firm white fish if you don’t have fresh.
