In a large bowl combine all ingredients except the cilantro. Toss gently but thoroughly, making sure all fish is coated with lemon-lime mixture.

Ok this is a great ceviche recipe. Only question, if I only put in half the avocado, where does the other half go? And are the crackers for dipping too, just like the tortilla chips?

I believe this to be by far one of the best Ceviche recipes I've come across.I used fresh talapia filets,made it in the morning,let it sit for 4-5 hours.Ate it for lunch,came out delicious.

ceviche is a fantastic dish! however, this recipe is guilding the lilly, so to speak. it can do with a much simpler recipe because it doesn't need so many ingredients. all you need is fish, tomato, onion, cilantro, lemon and lime juices and salt and it's perfect! also, I reccomend shrimp and crab for the seafood, but this recipe is very good both ways. cheers.
