Recipe for seviche

Serves 6

Arguably the best way to enjoy freshly caught fish is to eat it raw. Chef Anthony Caturano keeps knives aboard his boat so he can do just that. This simple seviche works as well with striped bass as it does with fish such as fluke or snapper. If you haven’t caught the fish yourself, make sure to buy it from a trusted purveyor.

1pound striped bass or another white fish, cut
into ½-inch dice
½cup lime juice
1jalapeno, cored, seeded, and chopped
Salt and black
pepper, to taste
½cup chopped fresh
1bunch scallions (whites and light greens only), chopped
1avocado, pitted and diced
Crackers or
tortilla chips
(for serving)

1. In a bowl, combine the fish, lime juice,
jalapeno, salt, black
pepper, cilantro,
scallions, and avocado.
Toss gently. Cover
and refrigerate for
10 minutes.


2. Transfer the seviche to a bowl. Serve with crackers or tortilla chips. Adapted from Anthony Caturano
