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 has to offer.
Consider this recipe as the “101” to the different preparations I’ll be showing you along our journey; the most straightforward and classic of all the ceviches. The key to a successful meal is the freshness of all the ingredients, especially the fish. Feel free to swap out the red snapper with halibut, fluke, corvina, hamachi or thai snapper. Hope you get to enjoy it as much as I do!
