  1. Chop any large chunks of seafood so all of the pieces are relatively the same size, about 2 to 3cm. Stir the seafood mix and lime juice together in a large, non-metallic bowl; let stand 10 minutes. Fold in the diced tomatoes and onion; cover, and refrigerate 30 minutes. Whisk together the Worcestershire sauce, hot sauce, tomato puree, cayenne pepper, cumin, chilli powder and salt in a small bowl. Cover, and refrigerate 30 minutes.
  2. After 30 minutes, gently stir half of the tomato puree mixture into the seafood mixture. Cover the remaining tomato puree mixture and the seafood mixture. Return both to the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
  3. After another 30 minutes, gently stir the remaining tomato puree mixture into the ceviche, cover and refrigerate another 30 minutes.
  4. Gently stir the coriander and diced avocado into the ceviche before serving.
