Place fish and cooked seafood on a large glass or ceramic bowl (never use a metal bowl it doesn't mix well with the citrus), season with crushed garlic and salt. Add chopped hot chili pepper, lime juice, pepper and chopped cilantro. Let it set for 10 minutes. Taste juice to check for hotness. In a large platter make a bed of lettuce leaves, place bowl content on top of lettuce adding onions on top of marinated seafood, decorate with slices of corn, sweet potatoes and more hot pepper (if desired).
