The last thing we want to do in this sweltering summer heat? Turn on the oven. That's why ceviche (aka raw fish soaked in a citrus marinade) might just be our new favorite summer appetizer. Best of all, it's surprisingly easy to make at home.

What You Need:
 - 1 pound halibut
 - 1 cup tomatoes, diced
 - 1 red onion, diced
 - 1 serrano pepper, seeded and diced
 - ¼ cup lemon juice
 - ¼ cup lime juice
 - Hot sauce
 - Salt
 - Pepper
 - ½ avocado, sliced
 - Cilantro, for garnish

Step 1: Cut the halibut into ½-inch cubes and place in a glass bowl. 

Step 2: Combine the tomatoes, onion, serrano pepper, lemon juice and lime juice with the halibut. Add hot sauce, salt and pepper to taste.

Step 3: Refrigerate covered for 3 hours, stirring every hour. Garnish with avocado slices and cilantro and serve cold with plenty of tortilla chips.
