Ceviche is a South American seafood dish originating in Peru, made from fresh raw fish cured in fresh citrus juices and spiced chilli peppers.

This ceviche recipe is incredibly nutritious and will provide maximum satiety and all the nutrients you need with the least calories.  

The fresh snapper provides a massive hit of protein and omega 3, vitamins B5, B6, B12, D and E, choline, potassium and selenium

The greens (asparagus, broccoli, rocket and celery) boost folate, vitamins A and K1 along with a broad range of minerals, and avocado oil provides a luxurious texture and taste.  

Use fresh fish from a trusted source or reputable fishmonger.  Since the citric acid will not kill any bacteria the way heat does, you must use fresh, parasite-free fish!
