  • 15 limes (14 halved, 1 cut into wedges)
  • 1/2 cup chopped seeded tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup chopped seeded cucumber
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped onion

  • Salt & freshly ground black pepper

  2. Drain off the lime juice, gently squeezing the fish with your hands. Discard the lime juice. Mix the tomato cucumber, onion, and cilantro with the fish. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Add the clam-tomato juice and the hot sauce, if desired.
  3. Spread the tostadas generously with mayonaise. Top the tostadas with the ceviche.Arrange the avocado slices on top of the ceviche and serve immediately, with the lime wedges alongside.
