Traditionally, ceviche is raw fish that?s ?cooked? by marinating it in acidic citrus juice. Here we quickly poach the tilapia then marinate it with fresh herbs, lime juice and crunchy vegetables for an easy summer dinner. Make it a meal: Serve with warm corn tortillas.

Recipe Ingredients for Mock Ceviche

1 pound tilapia fillets, cut into 2-inch pieces
1 jalapeņo peppers, minced
1/2 cup lime juice
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro, divided
1 teaspoon chopped fresh oregano
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 large green bell pepper, diced
1 large yellow bell pepper, diced
1 large tomato, chopped
1/2 cup sliced white onion
1/4 cup olives
1 avocado, chopped

Recipe Directions for Mock Ceviche

  1. Place tilapia in a medium skillet. Cover with water. Bring to a boil over high heat, remove from the heat, cover and let stand for 5 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, place jalapeņo to taste in a small bowl and whisk in lime juice, 2 tablespoons cilantro, oregano and salt. Transfer the tilapia to a large, shallow, nonreactive dish with a slotted spoon and pour the lime juice mixture over the top. Add bell pepper, tomato, onion and olives; gently mix to combine. (It?s OK if the tilapia breaks apart.) Cover and chill for at least 20 minutes.

  3. Sprinkle with the remaining cilantro and avocado just before serving
