Ceviche is considered the national dish of Peru and it is by far the most famous dish that comes from our country. It’s a dish that I grew up eating, in many different variations and preparations.
Ceviche is a delicate seafood dish that consists mainly of fish and/or seafood “cooked” in lime juice with salt, aji (chili peppers), red onions, coriander, and sometimes other seasonings. In some variations, this dish also has sweet potatoes, corn, lettuce and even seaweed served alongside it. Ceviche is found all along the Peruvian coast, with each town/city serving its own version/interpretation depending on what the local ocean and land have to offer.
