Ceviche is a delightful dish that originates from the coastal regions of Latin America, particularly Peru. This refreshing and vibrant recipe showcases the perfect balance of flavors and textures. It typically consists of raw fish marinated in citrus juices, such as lime or lemon, which effectively “cooks” the proteins. The citrus juices impart a tangy and zesty flavor, while the addition of various herbs, vegetables, and seasonings further enhances the taste. Ceviche is often served chilled and makes for a fantastic appetizer or a light meal on a warm day. Its combination of acidity, freshness, and the natural sweetness of the seafood creates a truly mouthwatering experience.
