Citrus Ceviche

Recipe by  

"My take on the classic Peruvian ceviche. The acidity of the citrus fruit 'cooks' the fish. A nice refreshing meal on a hot summer day. It's imperative to use only freshly caught fish!"

We substitued mango for the egg and left out the ginger. The warmth of the mango really contrasted w/the citrus and made this ceviche absolutely divine.

This is not really Peruvian ceviche, you need to make it out of pure lime juice and it needs rocoto as well as adding the salt before the lime if not it will not get cooked without the salt. No egg and no avocado.

Fresh fish is a must for this recipe. A great pool side snack on a hot summer afternoon.

I make this with shrimp instead of halibut and it turns out great everytime. My only comment would be that the marinating time seems a little short.

I took one reviewer's advice and used OJ, shrimp, and mango and left out the ginger and eggs. Fresh sea bass is difficult to find, because it is "over-fished" according to my fishmonger. He suggested halibut, instead. The ceviche was good, but on the sweet side. If you like the sweetness, you will love this receipe. If you prefer your ceviche more on the savory side, skip the mango and OJ. Easy to make, once you have all the ingredients.

Definitely a hit with my family. We opted to use shrimp for this recipe but next time I'm thinking Cod would be really good. I don't do cilantro but my family does so I tasted before it went in and really enjoyed the addition of OJ. So refreshing on a hot summer day! Thank you!

I always seem to have left over fish and one night had a rather large amount of cod. I didn't want it to go to waste and I wanted to reinvent it - so used this recipe. Since fish was already cooked, didn't have to worry about that. I added serrano chili to add some heat and served over cilantro lime rice. Was a huge hit! Will definitely make again!
