But for me being a vegetarian it was not possible and was thinking to make this with coconut meat but when ever I have coconut I am on vacation in South America and don't have access to other ingredients to make it but got a chance to buy a few very sweet coconut with water and meat from local vendor and on first one when I opened it , I was like ok now my dream of making ceviche is fulfilled. This vegan coconut ceviche is perfect fresh and healthy appetizer or side dish to bring it to the parties or just to munch on it.
2 cups coconut meat, cleaned and cut in bite size pieces
1 cup cherry tomatoes, chopped in bite size pieces
1/4 red onion finely chopped
1/4 Persian cucumber chopped
1/2 cup cilantro chopped
1 avocado diced
1 of each lemon and lime juiced
2 garlic cloves finely chopped
1 tbsp. Tajin seasoning - if you don't have this use Indian Chat Masala
1 tbsp. vegan fish sauce
1 tbsp. Olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste
Clean up the coconut meat as clean as possible, you don't need any brown spots in it, just the white meat.
Chopped and get ready with all the vegetables.
In a bowl, combine everything except avocado.
Toss them together gently and cover and let it marinated in the fridge for at least half an hour , the more its better.
When its ready to serve, add the avocado and mix it gently and taste it if it needs more salt and pepper or other seasoning.
Serve cold with some crunchy tortilla chips
