I have a fish cake recipe I serve with sweet chile sauce that we love as well - no huge filler in it. If you would like this recipe I will gladly post it. It is late now so I will wait until after I have had some sleep!
Thanks, LP. I like the sauteed shrimp idea.

Update

I really have a raft of great ideas thanks to all you guys.

SO had hinted she wanted me to try the shrimp ceviche because she liked the one we had at the restaurant so that's what I did.

I used a recipe from Rick Bayless' website. I figured he'd know what he was doing. Well, I made the recipe and SO didn't care for it. Upon giving it some thought, I never should have made it unless I made an exact duplicate of the one we had last Sunday at that restaurant. She had that taste memory and wanted to duplicate it. Nothing else would have been acceptable.

I thought it was OK but not great.

Yes, that's a margarita glass.
