You'll need

100 gm (½ cup) drained choclo 1 small sweet potato (about 300gm), peeled, thickly sliced into rounds ½ small Spanish onion, thinly sliced ½ tsp olive oil, plus extra to serve 80 gm (2/3 cup) cancha Pinch each of smoked paprika and ground cumin 60 ml (¼ cup) aji amarillo paste 1 finely grated lemon rind 50 ml each lemon juice and lime juice 1 tbsp light agave nectar 300 gm sashimi-grade snapper fillet, or other white-fleshed fish, cut into 1cm dice, and chilled 1-2 jalapeños, thinly sliced 1½ cups (loosely packed) coriander leaves 8 small iceberg lettuce leaves (optional), to serve

Method

  • 01
  • Simmer choclo and sweet potato in a small saucepan of salted water until tender (7-8 minutes). Drain, refresh briefly in iced water, then drain again and set aside.
  • 02
  • Meanwhile, mix onion and 1 tsp salt in a heatproof bowl, cover with boiling water and steep until onion is bright coloured and tender (5 minutes). Drain and set aside to cool.
  • 03
  • Heat a large non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat, add oil, cancha and a pinch of salt and stir occasionally until lightly golden (2-3 minutes). Remove from heat, add paprika and cumin, toss until fragrant (2-4 seconds) and spread on a tray to cool.
  • 04
  • Mix aji amarillo paste, lemon rind and juice and lime juice in a bowl to combine, add agave nectar and salt to taste. Add fish and jalapeño and set aside until the citrus juice “cooks” the ceviche and it turns opaque (1 minute or 5 minutes for a firmer result). Add choclo, onion and coriander and stir to combine.
  • 05
  • To serve, place sweet potato on serving plates, spoon ceviche over, scatter with cancha and drizzle with extra oil.

Note Choclo, cancha and aji amarillo paste are available from Latin food shops such as Terras Latinas (tierraslatinasenaustralia.com). Choclo is a giant, creamy-coloured corn from Peru typically available in jars; if it's unavailable, substitute sweetcorn kernels. Cancha is a Peruvian snack of toasted corn with a nutty flavour. Light agave nectar is available from health-food shops; if it's unavailable, substitute sugar syrup.
