  • 1/2 lbs Paiche or other white fish
  • 6 oz fresh watermelon, cubed
  • 4 radishes, half mooned
  • 1 serrano pepper, sliced into circles
  • 1 C red wine vinegar, divided
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • Black sesame seeds, for garnish
  • Flaky salt


Cube watermelon into 1cm cubes. Thinly slice radishes and then halve them into half moon shapes. Slice serrano into rings and put all into a bowl. Pour 1/2 C of the red wine vinegar over and mix. Set in the fridge to marinate while you prepare the fish.  

Dice fish into 1cm cubes. In a separate bowl add fish and mix with the remaining 1/2 C of red wine vinegar and lime juice. Let the fish marinate on it’s on for about 20-30 minutes or until it turns opaque.
