1 lb (450g) haddock or other firm-fleshed fish, boned and cut in 1/2″ (5mm) cubes
1 small green pimento, finely chopped
1 small green chilli, finely chopped
handful fresh parsley, finely chopped
1 onion, chopped
juice of 2 limes (or lemons)
1 tblsp olive oil


  1. Mix all the ingredients well together and put them in a covered bowl in the refrigerator overnight.
  2. Eat it raw. It is “cooked” by action of juices.

Note: The fish must be very fresh.
