Tuna and Mango Ceviche is an appetizer you’d expect to order at a high end restaurant! But, thanks to Dorie Greenspan, you can make it at home!
My first experience with sushi was as a teen when we lived in Vancouver. My parents were treating us to a night out at a Japanese restaurant…and I don’t recall anything other than there was raw fish on the menu.
I couldn’t see any reason to eat uncooked seafood, though my parents dove in with gusto! A decade later, I had an epiphany as I swooned over tuna tartare at one of Todd English’s restaurants in Aspen. I finally realized what all the hype was about. Each bite was exquisite. So when this Tuna and Mango Ceviche showed up on our French Fridays’ schedule this month, I was thrilled.
An Elegant Seafood Appetizer or a Light Meal
Here’s when having a picky family pays off. This was ALL for me. Four appetizer servings became two dinner servings. Though this sort of dish should be served after a brief chilling since the lime juice breaks down the tuna over time, making it mushy, I loved it so much, I just didn’t care!
Lime, ginger, peppers, onion played deliciously off the tender tuna, creamy avocado and sweet mango. There was some chopping and dicing involved, but not a difficult recipe at all. Just make sure to procure your tuna from a reputable fish monger for the freshest seafood. Locally, I go to Kona Jack’s Fish Market, where they don’t roll their eyes at me when I ask for a pretty piece of fish. This tuna and mango ceviche ranked in my top 5 recipes we’ve created from Around My French Table…so darned tasty!
