How to make it

  • Have grill pre-greased and preheated to medium-high. (Could do this on the stovetop in a grill pan.)
  • ****
  • Place fish in a non-reactive bowl. Add 3 cups of chilled water to fish and rinse gently. Drain water.
  • Add onions to remaining chilled water and let soak.
  • Meanwhile, place aji, garlic, and pinch of salt in a mortar and pestle. Grind to make a paste.
  • Combine fish, lime and lemon juices, aji and garlic paste, salt, pepper, and cilantro. Let marinate for 10 minutes.
  • ****
  • Brush corn and sweet potato slices with oil and place on grill. Cook about 10 minutes.
  • ****
  • When ready to serve, divide fish ceviche among 4 lettuce cups and top with onion slices. Serve with grilled corn and sweet potato slices and garnish with Japanese seaweed, if desired.

    This looks so light and delicious. I love that sweet potato is used. Added to 3 groups, first 2 of which are mine: Gourmet Grill, Latin Cooking and Peruvian Food :-)

    RE: Aji Amarillo pepper (also called Aji Escabeche) substitution question: Hmmm, they do have a unique fruity taste, with berry overtones and citrus aromas - and as such, they don't really have a true substitute. You certainly could use red Serranos (or green) for a milder heat or red Thai chiles for a bigger heat. If you're willing to go to a higher heat level, you'd get closer to aja amarillo with a habanero, since it has a different fruity tone...but it is kind of similar.

    You know, I love using fresh chiles, too - but I have had some luck with buying dried aji amarillos, and there are commercial brands of aji amarillo powder (aji mirasol) as well that work well in a pinch. If you can find the aji amarillos in any of their forms, that is ideal. I know I can find the dried whole peppers and the powder from a local Mexican grocer - and sometimes I find the fresh there as well. There are also some online grocers that sell all versions.

    Have a great weekend..... :)

    This looks and sounds so good. It has many of my favorite flavors. If I would spend less time reading everyone else's posts I would have time to add more recipes of my own. With recipes like this it makes it hard.
