  • 1/2 pound fresh tilapia
  • 4 cup limes about 1/4 plus 3 tbsp
  • Zest of 1 orange
  • 1/4 cup fresh orange juice
  • 1/4 cup green onion sliced thinly
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon finely diced jalapeno
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup diced mango
  • 1/2 cup diced tomato seeds discarded
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro plus more for garnishing
  • 1/2 an avocado diced


  • Slice the tilapia into very thin slices. You could also do small dice and transfer to a bowl.
  • Add the line juice, orange juice, green onion and jalapeño.
  • Stir the mixture making sure to coat all the fish with the citrus juice.
  • Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least three hours, stirring once or twice in that time.
  • After three hours the fish should have turned white, if it's still a little opaque let it rest for another half hour.
  • Add the mango, tomato, cilantro and avocado and gently fold through with a wooden spoon.
  • Taste and add more salt and pepper if desired.
  • Transfer to a small serving bowl and serve with crunchy tortilla chips.
