How do you pick a fish for ceviche?
For a beginner-friendly ceviche, try looking for striped bass, fluke, or flounder. The fish you buy should smell briny, like the sea itself, but not “fishy.” If you’re buying whole fish, look for ones with clear and glossy eyes and bright red gills.
What is the most popular ceviche?
Ceviche de champignones or mushroom ceviche is one of the most popular vegetarian version of ceviche. Although it is not that common, it can be found in some Peruvian cevicherias. This appetizer is made with blanched slices of firm white mushrooms, lime juice, salt, pepper, minced garlic, and Worcestershire sauce.
What is authentic ceviche made of?
Ceviche (or cebiche) is a seafood dish where diced raw fish is marinated in citrus until it is firm and opaque, then mixed with flavorful veggies like onions, peppers, and cilantro. The fish is not cooked, but rather the acid denatures the protein of the fish, curing it and giving it a cooked appearance.
