Prep Time: 30 Minutes
Cook Time: 0 Minutes
Serving Size: 2 ounces


1 lb. Chilean Sea Bass fillet
1/2 cup freshly squeezed Lime juice
6 Tbs. freshly squeezed Grapefruit juice
1 whole Grapefruit
1/2 tsp. very finely minced Garlic
2 Tbs. very finely minced Red Chilies
1 Tbs. very finely minced Green Chilies
1 packed Tbs. Chiffonade of fresh Mint
2 packed Tbs. Chiffonade of Cilantro
Hot sauce & Extra Virgin Olive Oil for garnishing


With a very sharp knife, cut the fish into thin broad slices. Place in a bowl, and toss with the lime juice and grapefruit juice. Let sit at room temperature for 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, cut the grapefruit in half at the center, and using a grapefruit knife, remove sections of grapefruit. Slice each section in half, the long way.

When ready to serve the Ceviche, drain the liquid completely from the Sea Bass, and discard liquid. Add grapefruit pieces to the fish, along with garlic, red chiles, green chiles and mint. Toss gently. Divide among 6 plates, laying out the strips of halibut flatly on each plate. Season with coarse salt, sprinkle with hot sauce, and drizzle with extra virgin olive oil.
