Ceviche has become a popular international dish for several reasons. Besides it’s excellent range of flavors, it’s light, easy to digest, super healthy and an excellent source of protein. Ceviche also contains lots of vitamins and minerals and it’s a low-fat food.
It took me a while to learn to enjoy raw fish and Ceviche certainly helped me to appreciate it! It kind of took me by the hand and said ” Don’t worry Jill, I’m “cooked” in citrus juice ” It took me on a little adventure and convinced me of it’s greatness. Even if you aren’t a fan of raw fish, I would recommend trying this! And for all the Ceviche fans out there; ” Where’s is the tortilla chips?” Lets dig in!
I love what fresh orange juice does to this dish; the subtle sweetness combined with the onions, fresh herbs and peppers make my mouth water.
