  Spicy Sweet Tropical Ceviche
  • This is one of my favorite ceviches. The heat of the peppers contrasts nicely with sweetness of the mango and the creaminess of coconut.
  • Use a firm textured fish for this recipe, I like yellowtail and snapper best.
  • Serve this with rice crackers, fried won ton skins or tortilla chips

  • 2 lb yellowtail or any other firm fish, skinned, cut in bite size pieces
  • 1/2 cup lite coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup yellow mangos, skinned and diced (Atulfos are my favorite)
  • 1/2 cup fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 1/3 cup sweet onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons Mae Ploy sweet chili sauce
  • 2 tablespoons jalapeno, finely chopped (or other hot pepper)
  • 2 tablespoons roasted red pepper, coarse diced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh garlic, finely minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, finely minced
  • Salt to taste


  • Once all ingredients are prepped, gentlly combine them all. Let mixture marinate for at least an hour to let the flavors meld.
  • It can be served right away or even used the following day.
  • Serves 10 to 15 people as an appetizer
