  • 6 roma tomatoes, diced small

  • ½ red onion, diced small

  • 1 cucumber, diced small

  • 2 avocados, diced small

  • 1 cup of cilantro, chopped


  • 1 Head of PIP romaine lettuce, washed and leaves separated to make lettuce cups.

  • 3 raw plantains, sliced paper thin on a diagonal



  • Combine the orange juice + zest, lime juice + zest,minced garlic, salt and pepper in a bowl and stir to combine. Taste, adding more salt, pepper, and citrus juice as needed. Set aside.


  • Cut fresh halibut into 1 inch cubes, season with salt and pepper. Sear the pieces in a skillet on both sides cooking the pieces fully, about 1-2 min on each side. Set pieces aside and allow to cool.

  • Next, prepare the vegetables as stated in the ingredient list. Place all vegetables, except the avocado, into a large mixing bowl.

  • Pour the marinade over the diced vegetables, mix to combine. Once mixed, gently add in the avocado pieces.

  • Gently add in the halibut pieces, folding into the vegetable mixture. Place in the refrigerator to chill.


  • For the lettuce cups, prepare and properly clean the PIP romaine lettuce. Tear off lettuce leaves and assort them onto a plate or in a bowl.

  • For the plantain chips, remove peel and thinly slice the plantain pieces on the diagonal, allowing for more surface area on the plantain chip itself.

  • Air Fryer- Preheat air fryer to 400 degrees. Place plantain chips in an even layer and spray with cooking oil. Cook for 5-6 minutes or until crispy.

  • Oven- Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Place the uncooked plantain chips on a baking sheet in an even layer. Spray with cooking spray and season generously with salt and pepper. Cook for 8-10 min, flipping halfway through to ensure even cooking and crispness!

  • You can also buy them at the store! :)

Finally, serve the ceviche alongside the lettuce cups and plantain chips! Garnish with lime wedges and extra cilantro!

**This recipe does not utilize the traditional citrus juice cooking method for the fish. However, you can do that if you so choose! Using the freshest fish possible, combine ingredients (besides avocado) and place in the refrigerator in an airtight container for 4-6 hours, stirring every hour, or until the fish changes from whitish grey and translucent, to whiter in color and opaque.
