Top Rated Peruvian Ceviche Recipes

This recipe comes from Ciudad in downtown Los Angeles. The onions need to pickle for a day, so plan ahead before making this. This recipe calls for halibut, but you can use any firm white fish. It also uses aji amarillo chilies, but jalapeno peppers can be substituted if need be.

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!

The best and easiest Ceviche recipe I've ever tasted (and I've tried them all over South America). It's quick, easy and disappears quickly. The habanero peppers make it spicy without giving it the distinctive flavor of jalapenos and it's great without hot peppers too. You can adjust any of the seasonings to suit your taste. I am not a cilantro fan, but this is the only recipe in which I will tolerate cilantro.

Classic Peruvian Ceviche Use any combination of whitefish (I use tilapia or halibut, if you'd like to splurge, shrimp, scallop, and/or crab (lump works just fine, but don't do the salt water bath on the lump type) And must must must be served with Peruvian Aji Salsa Verde and chips!! It is not a form of salsa in the normal american idea of the word, but meaning only that it is a sauce, its nothing like the chunky sort of salsa served at latin restaurants etc. Also, can be made days in advance, the first time I made it, i made it the evening before, but sampled and it tasted just the same if not better the next evening when I served it, and the same was true a few days later with the leftovers : )

Ceviche, which involves immersing delicate raw fish in aromatic citrus juices, is an innovative way to slowly "cook" fresh fish. Habanero chiles add a spicy kick to the dish, but are balanced out by a mixture of sweet potatoes, corn, and butter lettuce.

Like carpaccio, ceviche (seh-VEE-chay) is a raw fish recipe that modern cooks just love to play with. It is essentially fish "cooked" in the acid of citrus juice and served with a cold beer on a hot day. The dish originates in Peru, and is thought to be a development from Spanish escabeche, which is a vinegar-marinated dish. This recipe is for the classic Peruvian ceviche. Ceviche is so sharp and acidic it cries out for beer and tortilla chips as an accompaniment - although you won't find tortilla chips in Peru. In Peru, you will most often find this served with potatoes, either sweet or white.
