Spicy Fish Ceviche

It is important to get enough lime juice to cover the fish. Also, be sure to use a juicer that squeezes the juice out of the limes, not one that will tear the membrane of the lime sections since this will make the lime juice bitter. Serve with lettuce, avocado, or other cold vegetables on the side. (From recipezaar.com.)
