Infused Habanero Salt


Habanero Salt's potent, pleasant, and lingering heat brings a welcome bite to this bright ceviche. Have fun plating this one– once done marinating, serve the fish on a bed of black sesame seed pesto then top with crunchy radishes, buttery avocado and cilantro leaves. 

Serves 3-4


    Combine fish, lime zest, lime juice, onion, ginger, olive oil, and kosher sea salt. Let the fish marinate in the fridge for 20-30 minutes. Stir occasionally. 

    Pulse the sesame seeds, cashews, and garlic in a food processor. Puree with oils, garlic, and habanero salt. 

    Spread the sesame pesto on a serving platter. Top with marinated fish followed by radishes, avocados, and picked cilantro.

    Finish with more habanero salt and serve with tortilla chips.
