Third, when you are ready to serve it, mix in the Sea Salt, Pepper, Cilantro, the remaining Onion, the remaining Tomato, and the Avocado.

Lastly, taste it and see if you need more Lime/Lemon Juice… You are gonna need a lot of self control to not eat it all! 😉

I serve it with my favorite gluten free chips and watch all the people devour it! 🙂  You will get all sorts of questions like what kind of fish is this… it’s Deelicious… and also, how do you cut open a Coconut?!?

There are many ways to do it, but I use the bottom edge of a Meat Cleaver while striking the coconut in a circular pattern.  I am a small framed woman, if I can do it… you can do it! It’s really easy once you get the hang of it! 🙂

Looking forward to hearing how much you enjoyed this Coconut Ceviche Appetizer…
