Ceviche Avocado Toast

Ceviche Avocado Toast Recipe - No Cook Summer Brunch or Dinner Idea

Sometimes I get carried away. While we were up in the Eastern Sierras a few weeks ago, I was planning my to do list when I returned. I had to make a recipe that featured chili flakes and in all my brainstorming, I dreamed up this avocado ceviche toast. I figured the ceviche would be kicky with the chili flakes and the avocado toast would calm the flavors perfectly. Genius, right?

I mean, I thought so at least. I got back to my office only to realize the recipe was supposed to emphasize outdoor grilling and they wanted a short ingredient list with simple items.

So, the kicky ceviche toast with avocado was out and the spicy avocado toast (also insanely delicious) was born. But I wasn’t gonna let this delicious combination of ceviche and avocado toast (two of my favorites) disappear…

Ceviche Avocado Toast

Honestly, this recipe is good just for the ceviche. You could ditch the avocado toast, heat some corn tortillas, and have ceviche tacos.

OR you can go the traditional route and just serve it with great tortilla chips. I’m currently partial to the ceviche avocado toast, but this is a judgement free zone!

Ceviche is the perfect no cook summer recipe. It’s hearty, healthy, filling, and doesn’t require your oven or even your stovetop to cook. Whip it up in the morning or early afternoon for a make-ahead dinner recipe. You can use any combination of fish, but I think variety is the spice of life.

What Fish Is In Ceviche?

Traditional ceviche has a combination of fish in it, including shellfish and non-shellfish.

If we’re being honest, I usually like scallops (seared scallops is my other favorite way to enjoy) most. They tend to be the most expensive at the fish counter, however.

You can also use shrimp, white fish, other shellfish, salmon, or, well, whatever. Alas this combination really is the tastiest! I think a combination of fish is the best for flavor and cost. It can start to feel all the same if you only use one.

If you have a great source for fish, you’ll also want to try this smoked salmon toast, grilled shrimp toast, and tuna tartare toast!

If you just need every meal served on a lovely piece of toast, try this smoked salmon toastspicy avocado toast, a tuna tartare tartine for two, beautiful radish toast, or some ricotta and zucchini toast!

On the sweeter side, this blood orange crostini is positively perfect! One loaf of bread and you’re set for the week on meals!
