2.5 from 2 ratings
Ceviche is simply bite-sized pieces of super fresh fish fillets marinated in freshly squeezed citrus juice until the fish gets firmer and more opaque, just like if it had been cooked using heat. Simply combine all the ingredients and let them marinate until the fish is “cooked” to your liking.
