Ceviche de Pescado (Fish Ceviche)


One of the things I love the most about Mexican food is that simplicity of some of its dishes, like this lovely ceviche made with fish, tomato, onion, coriander and lime, simple ingredients, but when they are put together with a bit of seasoning, ufff! They like an explosion of amazing flavours.

My dad loved making ceviche and at home in Ensenada, we would make a big bowl to feed an army and we only needed an excuse to gather and make a cevichito and some nice cold beers!

As he would always say: the best things in life are simple and humble and a ceviche is just that! X
