Some ceviche recipes call for marinating the fish for so long that it cooks all the way through in the acidity of the marinade. Personally, I like to keep the fish fresher, giving it just long enough in the juices that it goes opaque and firm on the outside, but surprises you with a silky texture when you bite into it.
1 corn cob
1 sweet potato, peeled and chopped
500g/1lb skinned cod fillet, cut into 2cm chunks
Juice 4 limes
½ garlic clove, crushed
1 red chilli, sliced
4 corn tortillas
2 tbsp light-flavoured oil
3 tbsp tomato juice
½ red onion, finely sliced
Handful coriander leaves
Blanch the corn on the cob in a pan of salted boiling water for 1 minute, then lift it from the pan and set aside. Add the sweet potato to the pan and cook until just tender. Drain, refresh in cold water. Slice the sweetcorn kernels from the cob and set aside.
Place the fish in a large bowl and season with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper. Let it sit for 1 minute then stir in the lime juice, garlic and chilli. Leave to marinate for 5 minutes. Meanwhile, brush the tortillas with oil and griddle over a high heat, until toasted.
Fold the tomato juice, onion, coriander, cooked sweet potato and sweetcorn through the marinated fish. Adjust the seasoning and serve with the toasted tortilla.
