I love dishes that are fresh and simple and this is the perfect example! The fish "cooks" in the acid from the citrus juice. No heat required! This recipe is a seasonal riff on my go-to classic version and the perfect dish for a party!

Place the red onions in a bowl and add the lime juice and salt. Add water just to cover the onions. Stir together. Let sit 1 hour.
Cut the fish into 1/2-inch pieces and place in a bowl. Add 1 cup lime juice, stir together and let sit 30 minutes. Drain and discard half of the lime juice.
Add the tequila, agave nectar, orange juice, orange zest, pomegranate seeds, red onions, cilantro, serrano chile, and kumquats. Stir together well to mix. Add the avocado and season with salt. Add additional lime juice and salt as needed. Place in a bowl and serve with tortilla chips.
