Blue Marlin and Smoked Jalapeño-Tequila Ceviche
To prepare the Smoked Jalapeño Tequila:
Jalapeños can be smoked in a covered BBQ grill or over an open flame on your stove. To smoke over your stove, take a shallow pan with a perforated liner and cover. Line the pan with the chips and place over a medium flame. When the chips begin to smoke, place the jalapeños in a perforated liner and cover the pan. Turn the flames down to low and smoke for 10 minutes. While the jalapeños are still hot, remove them to a bowl, pour in the tequila and cover. Allow the tequila to sit for 48 hours.
To prepare the ceviche:
Combine all ingredients in a non-reactive (stainless steel or glass) bowl and allow to sit, refrigerated for 5 hours. Season to taste with salt. Serve in a martini glass garnished with a slice of avocado and corn tortilla chips.
