Serves: 4

Prep Time: 20 minutes | Marinating Time: 3 hours  | Total Time: 3 hours 20 minutes


  • 1 pound (450 g) fresh halibut fillet, skin removed
  • 1/3 cup fresh lime juice (from ~3 limes)
  • 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice (from ~2 lemons)
  • 1/3 cup fresh orange juice (from ~1 orange)
  • ¼ cup Haywire Chardonnay
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 large jalapenos, finely chopped, seeds and membrane removed
  • 1 large avocado
  • 3 tablespoons cilantro, finely chopped
  • Tortilla chips, for serving



  1. Use a sharp knife to cut the halibut into 1-cm cubes. Add the chopped halibut cubes to a small glass bowl along with the lime juice, lemon juice, orange juice, Haywire Chardonnay, salt, pepper, olive oil, and jalapenos. Mix to combine, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for 3 hours.
  2. Stir the ceviche every hour to distribute the liquid and to fully cook the halibut. After 3 hours, the halibut should be an opaque white colour, which indicates that it is cooked. Once cooked, strain the citrus juice from the ceviche.
  3. Chop the avocado into 1-cm cubes and add it to the ceviche along with the cilantro. Mix to combine and serve chilled with a bowl of tortillas and a glass of Haywire Chardonnay. Enjoy!
