About This Recipe 

If you've ever celebrated a holiday just for the sake of, well, celebrating, today's your day. It's National Tortilla Chip Day, and we can't think of anything else we'd rather celebrate than the crunchy companion that goes so perfectly with our guacamole, salsas, dips, and below that cheesy beef-and-jalapeno nacho recipe we just can't seem to resist (Salsa verde & sour cream on the side, please). Any way you decide to eat it is great, but we think this recipe with refreshing ceviche is a sure hit.

Ingredients 
  • 1 lb fresh halibut filets (or any firm-fleshed white fish, such as haddock, red snapper or sea bass), diced into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 1 cup fresh lime juice (from approximately 8 to 10 limes)
  • 1 fresh red serrano chili, seeds discarded, chili thinly sliced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 small mango, cut into 1/4-inch cubes
  • 1 scallion, white and green parts thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
Preparation 
  • In a medium-sized glass bowl, combine the fish with the lime juice, serrano and salt. Cover and refrigerate for 3-4 hours. The fish cubes will “cook” in the lime juice until they are opaque.
  • Half an hour before serving, stir the mango, scallion, cilantro and olive oil into the ceviche. Cover and refrigerate 20 minutes to let the flavors meld. Serve with chili limón tortilla Popchips for scooping up the ceviche.
