Peel, bone, and cut fish into small pieces.
Place in a large deep strainer and pour 2 cups boiling water over fish.
Let drain 2 or 3 minutes, then turn fish out into a deep glass or china bowl.
Make marinade out of lemon and lime juices, salt, pepper, chili strips, chili powder, and onions.
Mix all together; pour over fish.
If fish is not completely immersed, add more lemon and lime juices.
Cover and refrigerate about 4 hours, until all fish is firm and white.
About 25 or 30 minutes before fish is through marinating, prepare the garnishes.
Begin by boiling whole sweet potatoes 25 minutes, or until tender.
Drain, peel, and slice into 2-inch-thick rounds.
Boil cut corn rounds a few minutes until tender, then drain.
Heat l tablespoon oil in a heavy frying pan.
When hot, add the fresh corn kernels.
Stir frequently, until corn begins to brown and starts "popping" in the pan.
Remove pan from heat.
Arrange lettuce leaves on a large serving platter or individual plates.
Remove fish from marinade with slotted spoon and lay on lettuce leaves.
Scatter sweet potato and corn rounds on edges of plates.
