Fresh and flavourful, ceviche is a great no-cook dish – the citric acid in the lime juice “cooks” the seafood. It’s perfect for potlucks since you just set it out and enjoy. This recipe comes from a member of a women’s-only paddle-boarding group in B.C.

In medium bowl, combine fish and prawns. Pour lime juice over top and stir to coat evenly. Cover and refrigerate, marinating for 2 to 3 hours.
Drain lime juice from fish mixture and discard. Carefully fold in chilli peppers, avocado, tomato, onion, cilantro and salt. Keep covered in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
Drizzle olive oil over ceviche and serve with tortilla chips. Ceviche is best if consumed within 12 hours.
Tip: For best results, use Key lime juice. About 40 of the small fruits should be enough.
