  • 4 ounces sushi grade white fish tilapia, raw and cubed
  • 4 ounces sushi grade darker fish tuna, raw and cubed
  • 4 ounces sushi grade salmon raw and cubed
  • 4 ounces raw shrimp peeled and deveined
  • 1 cup fresh lime juice
  • 1 avocado diced
  • 1/2 cup grapefruit peel, pith, and membranes removed
  • 1 cup cucumber peeled and diced
  • 1 small red onion minced
  • 1/2 cup cilantro chopped
  • 1 jalapeno deveined, seeded and minced
  • salt and pepper


  1. Combine all the fish and shrimp with the lime juice in a small bowl.
  2. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes, until the tilapia is white and all the fish and shrimp are opaque.
  3. Gently fold in the remaining ingredients.
  4. Add salt to taste.  I like about a teaspoon.
  5. Mix again gently and serve with tortillas & chips or as a salad in a chilled glass over baby greens.
  6. Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

Raw fish should smell clean and fresh.  If your fish ever smell fishy, do not use it.
