mini ceviche tacos

mini ceviche tacos, two ways (vegetarian & pesca)

I’m guest posting today on A House in the Hills (one of my favorite blogs), while Sarah is in Mexico this week. I know, I’m jealous too.

To compensate for my vacation-envy, I made these bright little ceviche tacos and imagined myself on the beach soaking in the sun with a margarita in hand.

mini ceviche tacos, two ways (vegetarian & pesca)

Whitefish gets “cooked” with lots of lime juice. And for a fun twist I made a vegetarian version using chopped up hearts of palm that was equally, (if not more), delicious than it’s pesca counterpart.

You could serve them with chips as an appetizer, or with tortillas as more of a meal… I ended up somewhere in the middle by making little mini-tortillas.

both recipes together serve about 4 as a main dish, 6-8 as an appetizer

    These are so cute! My boyfriend and I make a celery ceviche that we are rather obsessed with. Will definitely have to branch out and give this recipe a try! Sounds delicious.

  2. My hubby and I love fish tacos…so this is a great recipe for us! And what a stunning photo. I can totally see making variations, such as with avocado and mango, for instance, for a more tropical twist. Yum!

      Love the mango idea, the added sweetness would be great… Avocado is most definitely necessary :)

    I’ve been looking for a good recipe to use hearts of palm in. This looks perfect!!! I cannot wait to make these veggie ceviche tacos. Yum!

  9. You’ve passed along the vacation envy to me; these are simply gorgeous and though I’m not quite ready to loosen my grip on winter {still hoping for at least one good snow here in Philly!} I’m now suddenly craving the flavors of summer. I have some bass in my freezer that I caught in early fall this year; this would be the perfect way to serve them!

    These are gorgeous! I want to have a party just so I could serve some (if may be a while, but still ;) xo
