Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 pounds fish fillets (sea bass, sole, or flounder), cut on the bias into 1-inch dice
  • 1 quart water, boiled and chilled
  • 1 red onion, cut in 1/2 lengthwise and sliced thin
  • 1 aji amarillo, rib and seeds removed, diced
  • 1 clove garlic
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons finely chopped cilantro leaves
  • 2 ears corn, cut in 1/2
  • 1 sweet potato, sliced 1/4-inch thick
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 head butter lettuce

Directions

Have grill pre-greased and preheated to medium-high.

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.
