I just returned from a week of work in Las Vegas where we stayed at The Palazzo. One of the restaurants we ate at several times was Dos Caminos and the hands-down favorite for all of us was the ceviche. They prepared 3 different varieties but my favorite was the tuna. I couldn't wait to get back home and recreate a version of it. My version may not be the exactly as there's but I'm loving it just the same (if not more!). —The Enchanted Cook

What You'll Need
  • 1/2 pound Ahi tuna steak (preferably sashimi grade), diced
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
  • 1/2 tablespoon rice vinegar (O Yuzu Rice Vinegar by O Olive Oil Co. preferred)
  • 1/2 of a Serrano pepper, very thinly sliced
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 5 small leaves fresh mint
  • 1 teaspoon black sesame seeds, plus more for garnish
  1. In medium bowl mix soy sauce, sesame oil, rice vinegar, Serrano pepper, lime juice, mint, and sesame seeds together.
  2. Add diced tuna to bowl and toss with soy sauce mixture to coat.
  3. Mound equal amounts of tuna ceviche on top of 6 individual crackers, chips, or piles of micro-greens. Or you could use slices of roasted sweet potato for the base as Dos Caminos does.
  4. Garnish with black sesame seeds and a sliver of Serrano pepper.

hello, here i am writing a review for a 10-year-old recipe! found this recently while looking for more of a poke-style take on ceviche, and this was perfect and so easy. will be making again.

Jose Andres Oyamel restaurant in Washington makes the best tuna ceviche I've ever had but it comes with a splash of the Maggi, which is not as sharp as Soy, plus ground Pecans. It's incredible
