71. Tuna Ceviche at OLA
Doug Rodriguez has been creating spectacular ceviches since the days when
most folks thought only onions, lime juice, and cilantro were
permissible. He has mined Ecuadorian ceviches of shrimp and corn nuts,
Honduran ceviches of coconut milk and jalapeños, Peruvian ceviches
black with squid ink. But this tuna rendition at OLA sparkles with sharp, intriguing flavors: Clementine confit, Thai chiles, chives, lime juice, and shaved ice spiked with an anise-flavored aguardiente liqueur. A perfectly refreshing dish for balmy Miami? We can't think of a better one.
