'Cooking' with the acidity of lime juice is a delicious, low-calorie method of preparing fresh fish, and has been around since ancient times. This tomato-based version originated in Acapulco and is very popular along the Pacific Coast. Serve up this tasty starter in a pretty sundae glass or on soda crackers.

Step 1

Place fish in shallow glass dish. Add lime juice, cover with plastic wrap and marinate for 2 hours at room temperature or until opaque. (The fish will not "cook" as quickly if refrigerated.) Stir occasionally.

Step 2

In small skillet heat oil on medium, add garlic, and slightly flatten with fork, sauté for 3 minutes. Let oil cool, and discard garlic.

Step 3

Pour off excess lime juice from fish. Stir in onion and season with Adobo. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Step 4

Just before serving, add cilantro, Tomato Sauce, Botanita, Sazón, Olives, garlic-oil and mix well. Serve cold with soda crackers.
