1 lb of sea bass or white fish
4-5 limes
½ red pepper
½ green pepper
½ small red onion
½ tomato
3 garlic cloves (diced small)
Handful of cilantro
1 tbsp of sugar

Cube fish cover with freshly squeezed lime juice and garlic.Let stand for 2 hours.
Add sliced vegetables and diced cilantro and a bit of sugar (old friend from Costa Rica said 7-up was his secret) to take a little of the bite out of the lime. Let stand another hour.
Total minimum marinate time is 3 hours. Previously we would “cook” our fish in the lime for much longer…but too long and the citrus juice softens the meat and diminishes the flavor. I recommend to make this dish mid day for an evening appetizer or side dish.
