Recipe Ingredients

  • 500g firm-fleshed, skinned white fish
  • 175ml lemon juice, from about
  • 5 lemons
  • 1 red onion, finely sliced
  • salt and black pepper
  • (optional)
  • 200g cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 green chilli, deseeded and
  • finely chopped
  • large handful fresh coriander,
  • roughly chopped
  • 1 punnet watercress, snipped
  • extra-virgin olive oil, to drizzle

Recipe Directions

  1. Remove any bones in the fish, then cut into 1cm cubes. Put into a large nonmetallic bowl and add lemon juice, onion and ¼tsp salt (if using). Leave to ‘cook’ for 5 to 30 minutes (depending on whether you prefer fish more raw or ‘cooked’ through). Stir gently from time to time.
  2. To serve, lift fish and onions out of liquid (reserve liquid); arrange on a large platter. Dot around tomatoes, then scatter over chilli, coriander, watercress and pepper (if using). Spoon over a little reserved lemon liquid (discard remainder) and drizzle with the olive oil.
