DIRECTIONS

  • Mix all the ingredients together in a large, non-reactive bowl and set aside to marinate for 10 to 20 minutes.
  • Drain excess liquid and adjust seasoning. Garnish with some freshly chopped green onions and serve in a decorate bowl or large clam shell.
  • NOTES: Make sure to use very fresh, high-quality fish for this dish. Such fish is often marked "sushi grade" in the market. Use other fish — halibut, snapper, swordfish — if you like.
  • Other possible additions: cubed red peppers, grated carrots, diced red onion, minced garlic.
  • Sometimes a pinch of sugar is added to take the edge off the acidity.
