Tuna Ceviche With BC Albacore Tuna

Tuna Ceviche With BC Albacore Tuna


BC Albacore Tuna Ceviche

Fresh, delicious and healthy, this is a great make ahead appetizer any time of year! 

This is an easy, healthy and delicious recipe that you can dress up or down. It is a perfect as a make ahead appetizer during the Christmas holiday season and a welcome lighter option (gluten and dairy-free as well) instead of the usual meat and cheese options.  

In the summer I add various in-season vegetables and even fruit occasionally. Try adding a 1/4 cup of a different ingredient each time in the summer and add a little extra lime juice and salt to taste. 

Some variations I love: fresh corn cut off the cob, finely diced cucumber, peaches, tomato or avocado.
