Paleo Strawberry Cod Ceviche

Cod Ceviche recipe and content provided by Brent Totty

Ceviche recipes all follow the same flow: Fresh fish gets soaked in some form of citrus and a variety of local produce. This cod ceviche follows the same formula and will immediately transport you to somewhere exotic.

Cod ceviche doesn’t require cooking in the standard sense. The combination of raw fish and citric acid begins to slowly denature the protein. Soaking the protein in citrus rearranges the amino acids in the same way that exposing meat to heat does.

A high-quality cod ceviche combines two different types of skill: Sourcing and precision knife skills. You must find fresh and high quality fish, as the citric acid does not kill bacteria in the same way as cooking it does. Cutting the fish into small, identical pieces ensures that the citric acid reaches as much surface area as possible.

Packed with antioxidants and micronutrients from strawberries and cilantro, this summery cod ceviche will delivers high-quality protein, healthy fats and plenty of flavor for the next time you’re dreaming of a tropical mouth-cation.

Cod ceviche is perfect for cooling down on a hot day, thanks to a refreshing mix of wild-caught protein, ripe fruit, and creamy avocado.
