Try this great recipe for Cod Ceviche with Blood Orange and Chives, one of my favorite recipes ever.
This cod ceviche with blood orange and chives is one of my absolute favorites ever. I created in just a few minutes when I had some leftover cod loin that was planned for something else. I sliced some cod thin and marinated it and paired it with filets of blood orange, olive, oil, chives and some salt and pepper.
There is really not much to making this and that is one of the things I like about it but the flavors are clean, fresh and simply delicious. Now, you can use this recipe in many ways,you don’t have to use cod and you don’t have to use blood orange either.
As a substitution for the cod you can try any firm white fish like turbot, halibut or even scallops. Instead of blood oranges you can use pink grapefruit. Now I don’t usually tell my readers to change the recipe before you’ve even tried it but both fish and blood oranges can be hard to find during some parts of the year.
