How To Make Canned Tuna Ceviche

Drain 2 cans of tuna and place the meat in a mixing bowl.

Next, you’ll make the marinade with lime juice and olive oil. Slice up the limes into quarters to make it easier to juice them. Squeeze lime juice into a liquid measuring cup or small bowl. Add 1/4 cup of olive oil and whisk together.

Pour marinade over tuna in bowl. Stir to coat tuna completely. Adding the lime juice and olive oil to the tuna makes it taste more like ceviche.

Now it’s time to prep the avocado. Slice in half and peel back the outer shell. Remove the pit and chop the avocado into pieces. Add avocado to the bowl with the tuna.

Slice off the stem end of the tomato and remove. Chop the tomato up and add to the bowl.

Chop up fresh cilantro (or use parsley or omit altogether) and add to the bowl. Mix together contents.

Now sprinkle in salt and cumin. Then mix everything together. You can serve right away or place in fridge to serve later.
