You can use almost any firm-fleshed fish for this Spanish influenced dish,
provided that it is perfectly fresh. The fish is 'cooked' by the action of the
acidic lime juice. Adjust the amount of chilli according to your taste.
- 1 1/2 lb halibut, turbot, sea bass or salmon fillets, skinned
- Juice of 3 limes
- 1-2 fresh red chillies, seeded and very finely chopped
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
For the garnish
- 4 large firm tomatoes, peeled, seeded and diced
- 1 ripe advocado, peeled and diced
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 2 tablespoon olive oil
- 2 tablespoon fresh coriander leaves
Cut the fish into strips measuring about 2 x 1/2 inch. Lay these in a shallow
dish and pour over the lime juice, turning the fish strips to coat them all over
in the juice. Cover with a clear film (plastic wrap) and leave for 1 hour.
Mix all the garnish ingredients, except the coriander, together. Set aside.
Season the fish with salt and scatter over the chillies. Drizzle with the
oil, Toss the fish in the mixture, then replace the cover. Leave to marinate in
the fridge for 15-30 minutes more.
To serve, divide the garnish among six plates. Spoon the ceviche, sprinkle
with coriander, and serve.

TASTING NOTES: "Greenish-straw color. Vibrant, mineral bouquet of wet stone,

Racy, exuberant citrus and fresh fig flavors show good lift and a stony,

won't let up. Another superb wine from this consistently topnotch producer.
