Richard Sandoval's Ceviche Classico
Cool Off With This Ceviche
Try this light, summery dish from chef Richard Sandoval. Sandoval owns more than 30 restaurants around the world. He has been nominated for a James Beard award for "Outstanding Restaurateur" and his restaurants have been recognized as some of the best in the country.
In a large chilled mixing bowl, toss the fish with the leche de tigre (this should be done over ice to keep the fish very cold). Place the marinated fish into 4 very cold serving plates.
Toss the onion slices, chiles and cilantro into the same mixing bowl with the leche de tigre and top each bowl of fish with equal amounts of the onion mixture. Pour the remaining leche de tigre equally over the ceviches and garnish with sweet potato dice. Serve immediately.
For the glazed sweet potatoes:
Place all ingredients into a small saucepan and bring to a simmer. When sweet potatoes are almost tender, move pan from heat and let sweet potatoes cool in the liquid. Once cooled; remove from liquid and dice. Reserve at room temperature before serving.
For the leche de tigre classico:
Combine all ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth. Let mixture sit to macerate flavors for 15-20 minutes. After sitting, strain through a fine strainer and keep very cold.
