Ceviche is a marinated fish dish where citrus juice (usually lime) “cooks” the fish. It is a poplar dish in Southern and Central America, as well as the Pacific Islands where it is known as Kokoda and coconut milk or cream is added. I love this dish when the weather is warm, as it is refreshing, low fat and healthy. Plus I can get all the ingredients I need from the Noosa Farmers’ Market, many from my own garden!
The Sunshine Coast is pineapple country and locals and visitors can enjoy the sweetest of pineapples at a fraction of the price that city dwellers pay. Because they are readily available all year round, I normally have one sitting in my fruit bowl and enjoy using them in my cooking in a variety of ways. This recipe came to fruition because I am currently on a fairly strict eating regime (a Spring detox) and wanted something fresh and tasty for dinner, as an alternative to the heavy lentil curries and brown rice dishes I have been eating for the past week. Pineapples are gorgeous in a salsa, and marry really well with fresh chilli and mint.
