Sept. 29 - Ceviche with Colombian fruits by Chef Juan Manuel Barrientos 

250 gr of white fish (scallops or lobster)
250 gr brown sugar (colombian panela)
250 gr salt 
10 gr pepper
50 gr fennel
50 gr dill 
1 lb tomatillo
10 gr garlic 
5 gr ginger
40 gr red onion
200 gr fresh goldenberry pulp (colombian exotic fruit, it can be too soursop or passion fruit)
200 gr blackberry pulp
200 gr guava pulp
250 gr coconut milk
1 avocado
1 shallot 
1 radish or yacon

First we are going to prepare a curing mixture with salt, brown sugar, pepper, fennel, dill, and cover the fish fillets with this for about 1 hour.
The base for the ceviche is prepared using the lulo pulp, tomatillos, garlic, ginger, salt, pepper, onion. blend all ingredients together until a smooth juice is obtained,strain and reserve in the fridge 
For the Fruit puree, these gels (juice reduction) are made by liquefying separately and puree - without water - the pulps of the fruits -each fruit separately - finely sifted (strained) with a pinch of salt and a teaspoon of sugar. Once thick and strained, they are allowed to cool until their texture is compact. Each gel flavor is reserved separately.
The coconut foam or air can be made easier at home by mixing the coconut cream with a little milk and heating it to 45 degrees and giving it air with a mixer or hand blender until it forms a light foam.
To finish, the white fish (scallop or lobster) is cleaned by removing the excess of the mixture in which it was cured using a damp cloth. It is cut into thin sheets.

Plate assembly (as in the photo):
Put the sheets of the selected seafood or fish - scallops, lobster or white fish of the day - in a deep circular dish or container, add a pinch of Maldon salt and black pepper.
An onion ring is placed, three large points of gel of your choice (Blackberry, Sour Guava and Tree Tomato).
Garnish with mustard sprouts and three small square pieces of avocado, three small yacon slices.
Bathe with the juice of lulo and tomatillo and add coconut foam dots.
It can also be served in small portions as canapé on a spoon or shell that allows it to be eaten in one bite
