1 1/2 lbs 681g / 24ozFirm white fish fillets - such as halibut, cod
3/4 lb 340g / 11ozLarge shrimp - 16-24 count
1 lb 454g / 16ozSweet onion such as Vidalia - Maui, or Walla (large) Walla

  On an ungreased - skillet for about 5
1 cup 237mlFresh lime juice
1/2 cup 118mlFresh orange juice

Recipe Instructions

Cut the fish in 1/4-inch slices; remove any bones as you go. Place the fish in a glass or glazed ceramic dish large enough to hold it in one layer.

Shell and devein the shrimp, rinsing them only if necessary to rid them of grit. Slice the shrimp in half lengthwise or butterfly them. Layer the shrimp over the fish.

Slice the onion in half lengthwise, then crosswise in thin slices. Layer the onion over the fish and shrimp.

Wearing rubber gloves, stem, seed and sliver the Habaneros and scatter them over the onions. Season the dish with salt and pour on the lime and orange juices. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for 8 hours or overnight, or until the fish and shrimp are opaque. Serve at cool room temperature.
