We adapted this recipe from Carmen's cookbook "Alquimias y Atmosferas Del Sabor." Her original recipe features mackerel, but since it's not readily available in the States, we've substituted halibut.
Servings: 4to 6


  • 1pound halibut, cut into a small dice
  • 1/2cup fresh lime juice
  • 1poundtomatillos, peeled and rinsed, cut into a small dice
  • 12 green olives, chopped (manzanilla olives work well)
  • 1/2large white onion, finely diced
  • 1jalapeno, finely diced
  • 1avocado, cut into a small dice
  • 1cup chopped cilantro
  • 1/2cup olive oil
  • salt


Scoop the halibut into a small bowl and pour in the lime juice. Stir to coat, then cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour, stirring several times to ensure the fish cures evenly. Drain the halibut and discard the lime juice.

Transfer the halibut into a large bowl. Gently fold in the tomatillos, olives, onion, jalapeno, avocado, cilantro and olive oil.  Season with salt  and the ceviche is ready to serve.
