Morro Bay rockfish ceviche with scallions, tomatoes, jalapeño and cilantro

A popular Latin American appetizer, ceviche consists of raw fish "cooked" in citrus juice. In chef Shaun Behrens' version, a marinade reminiscent of passion fruit juice and the crunch of fresh vegetables complement locally harvested rockfish.
