Ceviche Nikkei Recipe

By Nico Vera | September 21, 2012


When making ceviche, I strive to use a local white fish from a fishmonger I trust. And it’s important to take the time to wash and clean the fish before prepping and cooking with it. The acid in the lime juice will cook the ceviche, but in order to prevent from making the dish too acidic, you only need to use a small amount. As you add the lime juice, stop before the level of the juice in the bowl covers the ceviche. This dish will work well with different hot peppers, for example, you can try using a jalapeño instead of red fresno.
