Recipe: Fish & Pineapple Ceviche With Yam Chips

If you’ve never had ceviche, the best way to think of it is as a South and Central American version of sashimi. Made with raw fish or seafood that’s briefly marinated (cooked) in citrus juices and other flavourings, ceviche is one hell of a healthy dish. Boasting protein, essential fatty acids and minerals and tonnes of zing and flavour, it’s one of my favourite things to make.

Cook’s notes

  • You can make ceviche with white fish (tilapia, snapper, ling), salmon, tuna, prawns or scallops but the key is that your chosen seafood must be super fresh. I recommend asking your fishmonger about the freshest seafood that day and go from there.
  • I used purple skin yams for the chips as the sweetness of root vegetables offsets the acidity and saltiness of the ceviche perfectly. You can use red or purple sweet potato, carrots, pumpkin or beets instead. Even white potato will do, although it’s lacking the sweetness we’re after and has a higher glycemic index.
  • Pineapple can be replaced with mango, while radish can be replaced with red peppers, jicama root or cucumbers. If coriander (cilantro) is not your thing, you can use parsley, chives or basil instead.

For ceviche

  • 1 cup diced ripe pineapple
  • 5 radishes, thinly sliced or shaved

  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 1/2 tbsp fish sauce
  • 1/2 tsp honey
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tbsp diced fresh coriander

For yam chips

  • 1 medium red or purple yam (sweet potato), peeled and thinly sliced

Instructions

  1. Preheat over to 200 °C (400 °F). Peel and slice the yams and mix with spices, salt and olive oil in a bowl until well coated. Layer the chips on a baking paper covered flat roasting tray and bake for 25 minutes, turning over half way through.
  2. Place radishes, pineapple, lime and orange zest, sliced onion and chili in a bowl. Quickly pan fry coriander seeds in a small frying pan until slightly toasted to release the aromas, about 30 seconds. Crush with mortar and pestle or a spoon and add to other ingredients. Add lime juice, orange juice, salt, honey and fish sauce.
  3. Cut fish into small cubes or thin slices, add to the bowl with juices, sprinkle with some black pepper and toss through using your hands. Add fresh coriander and mix through again. Leave for 10 minutes, stir a couple of times to make sure the fish is cooking through evenly. Serve in bowls with yam chips on the side.

Preparation time: 30 minutes

Cooking time: 25 minutes

Number of servings: 2-3 if served as a main dish and 3-4 is served as a starter

    I tried this for dinner… the ceviche was delicious! really light and refreshing. The yam chips didin’t turn out as crisp as I would have liked – if anything they were a little soggy. But they tasted good all the same

    I will be making it again.

      Glad you like it. The chips are supposed to be a little soft :-) Kind o like roasted potatoes. The only tip I have to get them crisper is to make sure they don’t overlap each other on the baking tray and are cut thin. Irey

  • I love using chorizo to flavour dishes. Pork goes very nicely with prawns and squid and I like the vegetables used in this dish.

  • Marie Rose dressing is a British condiment – mayo and ketchup mixed together To make it paleo friendly I suggest to make your own mayo using olive oil or find a commercial one using olive or worst case sunflower oil, basically avoid canola or soybean as much as possible. This recipe however, calls for yogurt instead. Just use normal full fat variety and instead of ketchup use some tomato paste.

  • This is a bit of a prawn ceviche dish but you could easily grill the prawns after marinating if you’re not sure about eating them raw. Great fibre source salad.

  • Everyone’s favourite meatballs with a difference – no meat! Fresh fish is used, which together with Sicilian herbs and spices creates a light and fresh dish.

  • Make it Paleo: This recipe contains dairy such as butter and cream, both of which are high fat content and low lactose so perhaps you can get away with it. Otherwise you can probably use ghee and no cream, which will make it a bit thinner in consistency but the flavour of the mushrooms will still be amazing. Beef fillet and standard mushrooms can be used instead and you can add some dried porcini mushrooms for that wild forest flavour.

  • You don’t really need to dust the meat with flour as you can thicken the sauce with a little tapioca flour or through evaporation method (aka cook with no lid on for the last hour). Peeled white potatoes are fine in small amounts but feel free to replace with sweet potato, swedes, parsnips or throw in zucchini and cauliflower in the last hour.

  • Use ghee instead of butter if avoiding all dairy (although butter is pretty much fat with hardly any lactose left). Higher-welfare just means free range.
