  • 1 to 2 pounds of raw seafood cubed into 1 inch pieces*
  • 1 cup fresh lime juice
  • 1 large avocado diced
  • 1/2 cup red onion minced
  • 1 cup tomato seeded and diced
  • 1/3 cup fresh cilantro chopped
  • 1 jalapeno minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic minced
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne or a couple dashes of your favorite hot sauce optional
  • Salt to taste.


  • Place cubed seafood into a large bowl and cover with fresh lime. Refrigerate for 30 minutes while you chop up your remaining ingredients.
  • Remove the seafood from the refrigerator. Do NOT drain the lime juice. Add the remaining ingredients and salt to taste.
  • Serve with tortilla chips.


*I use tilapia and large shrimp. You could use scallops, mahi mahi, calamari, or a combination of all. You want firmer seafood so it doesn’t get mushy. Also you can just combine everything together at once but allow it to sit for 1 to 2 hours.
