Recipe Card


  • 1 stick butter
  • 1/2 pound raw shrimp
  • 1/2 pound raw mahi mahi
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup lime juice
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced red onion
  • 1 Fresno pepper, chopped
  • 1 cup heirloom tomatoes, seeded and diced
  • 2 tablespoons chopped mint
  • 2 avocados, peeled and halved
  • 1 blood orange, quartered
  • 4 slices sourdough, toasted
  • Sea salt, To Taste


  • Step 1

    Heat the butter in a light-colored saucepan over medium-low to medium heat, swirling occasionally to help it cook evenly. Continue cooking once the butter is melted, swirling it every so often, until it turns golden-brown and smells nutty, about 10 minutes total. Transfer browned butter to a heatproof bowl and set aside.

  • Step 2

    Place the shrimp and mahi mahi in a bowl. Add the lemon and lime juice and toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate at least 30 minutes or until the shrimp turns pink and the fish is opaque, but no more than two hours. Drain the fish and toss with the sliced red onion, Fresno pepper and tomatoes.

  • Step 3

    Spread 1 tablespoon of browned butter on each slice of toast. Mash half the avocado on each piece, then sprinkle with sea salt. Top with a quarter of the ceviche mixture, mint, and a squeeze of blood orange.
