What is ceviche? Traditionally, ceviche is a seafood dish popular in the coastal regions of the Americas. It is typically made from fresh raw fish cured in citrus juices, such as lemon or lime, spiced with ají or chili peppers and then garnished and served as an appetizer.
Today, the recipes for ceviche have come a long way. Next time you want to jazz up your favorite meal, try this delicious coconut ceviche as an appetizer or as the main entrée.
