Method

  1. Put the fish slices into a large shallow serving bowl.

  2. Sprinkle over the red onion slices, chilli and diced red pepper and mix gently using your fingers. Sprinkle over the lime zest.

  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the lime juice, cayenne pepper and olive oil until well combined.

  4. Pour the marinade over the fish, mix well using your hands and cover the bowl with cling film. Chill in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.

  5. When ready to serve, mix in the chopped coriander

  6. To serve, place one chefs’ ring into the centre of each of four serving plates. Add a double layer of avocado slices to the chefs ring, then spoon in enough ceviche to almost reach the top of the chefs’ rings. Top with the baby salad leaves, drizzle with olive oil and garnish with a wedge of lime. Carefully remove the chefs’ rings before serving.
