Ceviche is a flavour evocative word, you can even see it spelled in different ways but the final result is always the same, it will make your mouth watering.
Truth is ceviche also implies simplicity, it will surprise you to know that only five ingredients are needed to prepare a dish as delicious as you can imagine.
Differences between one ceviche and another mainly come from the type of fish or sea fruit used as base ingredient, but also comes from what type of lemon (or lime to be accurate) was used to marinate.
This said, you won’t be caught unprepared and now you can go to your favorite restaurant and start inquiring about your ceviche with the maitre.
One last tip, the most classical costume dictates that ceviche is only served as lunch, although new tendencies are giving the chance of tasting this dish on late hours. Whatever it is, if ceviche is not being served at the time you arrive to the restaurant, the alternative would be a tiradito, intrigued? go give it a chance!
