    A big platter of black cod ceviche and tomato and cucumber salad, which we scooped into soft tortillas and ate taco-style.

      Oooooh! Is there a recipe for this that you can share? I checked the LND blog but didn't see one unless I missed it. This is beautiful and so perfect for the weather. :)

      Well, it's pretty straightforward, actually... I had about 1/2 lb. of the black cod after I removed the skin, and I cut it into about 1/2-inch chunks. Put it in a glass container with some minced garlic, a pinch of sea salt and covered it with lime juice (about 3 limes worth - maybe a cup?). Then I let it sit, covered, in the fridge for half an hour. I pulled it out, added some very thinly sliced onion, tossed it all together and put it back in the fridge for another 15 minutes or so.

      For the tomato salad, I halved a bunch of little cherry and pear tomatoes, thinly sliced a fresh chile pepper, sliced up more onion into paper-thin slices, and tossed it with a dressing made up of a couple of tablespoons of (secret ingredient!) fish sauce, some fresh lime juice and zest, and canola oil (you can sub any other neutral-flavored oil, of course). I tossed it all and let it sit and marinate while the ceviche finished, then added some cubed cucumber and lots of fresh cilantro right at the end (I wanted the cukes to stay crisp and firm, rather than marinate in the dressing). And that was it!

      I'm totally obsessed with the combination of fish sauce and tomato these days - it really brings out the umami in the tomatoes.

      Thank you! :D Am definitely going to try it out. The idea of eating these with the soft tortillas sounds so appealing too...yum.

      And fish sauce really is the best, isn't it?

      You're welcome! I'm upset I didn't try fish sauce sooner :D
