Kook’s Korner: Fresh & Fun, Tuna Ceviche

This is a fresh, fun, healthy,  springtime recipe and Very easy, very tasty to boot! . This is a good one to try if you are less adventurous, as most people have eaten tuna before, so it’s not that big of a jump.  You can also substitute Wild Caught Canned Salmon.  It only takes about 10 minutes to prepare from the moment you get all the groceries out of the refrigerator.

Serves 4


2 cans of solid white tuna packed in water
4 lemons, juiced
1 medium red onion, peeled and finely chopped
2 medium fresh diced tomatoes
1 diced fresh jalapeño (without seeds)
2 tablespoons of diced celery
2 tablespoon of chopped fresh cilantro and parsley (for garnish)
1 teaspoon of minced garlic glove
1 tablespoon of olive oil
Lettuce leaves
Salt and pepper to taste


Drain the tuna.

Mix the lemon juice with the onion, jalapeño and garlic. Gently add the tuna and allow it to stand for few minutes. Then add the tomatoes, celery, olive oil, salt and pepper.

Serve over the lettuce leaves and garnish with springs of cilantro and parsley.

This recipe is really healthy and may be the easiest to make. Seriously, it takes less than 10 minutes!

Serve in a martini glass for extra effect…
