Tips for Fish

Instructions

  1. 1Dice the fish into 3/4-inch cubes and place in a medium nonreactive (glass, ceramic, or stainless steel) bowl. Add the lime juice, onion, jalapeño, and measured salt. Make sure the fish is covered with juice and refrigerate for 15 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes.
  2. 2Meanwhile, in another bowl combine the tomato, cucumber, watermelon, cilantro, and oil. Add some salt and black pepper and toss to combine. Set aside until the fish is done.
  3. 3Add the cured fish to the cucumber mixture (feel free to hold back some of the lime juice if it seems too wet). Serve immediately, with chips or crackers for scooping.
