Green Your Meal -- Ceviche

Ceviche_plate Ah, ceviche: a citrusy, summer-perfect seafood salad. Make it sustainable by opting for fish that the Monterey Bay Aquarium lists as a best choice in its Seafood Watch guides. If you’re near the Chesapeake Bay, try local wild-caught striped bass. Living elsewhere? Try Spanish or king mackerel, wild-caught Alaska salmon, bay scallops, or any tuna variety listed as a best choice. Bonus: The citric acid in a ceviche marinade tenderizes fish and helps inhibit bacterial growth, so you can "cook" sans-heat on muggy summer nights. --Leigh Barkley
