What is Ceviche?

Ceviche is a popular dish in many Latin American countries, particularly in coastal regions. It is made from raw fish or shrimp that is marinated in citrus juices, such as lemon or lime, which “cooks” the fish. You’ll also find onions, peppers, and herbs, creating a refreshing and flavorful dish.

Halibut
Tilapia
Cod
Sea Bass
Snapper
Mahi Mahi

There Is No Heat Involved. Is Mango Ceviche Safe To Eat?

This a common question with ceviche and the answer is yes! Although shrimp ceviche doesn’t require any actual cooking, the citrus juice cures the seafood and ‘cooks’ it without any heat.

Can I cook my shrimp or fish for this recipe?

Sure! If you don’t feel comfortable using raw fish, you can fully cook your shrimp or fish, or you can flash-cook it by steaming for 2-3 minutes to give it a jumpstart

How Long Can I Store it?

The best thing about ceviche is the fresh ingredients, so it is best to eat it on the same day. If you store it in an airtight container, it can be refrigerated for a day or two. Remember, the seafood will continue to cook in the lime juice, so the texture might change slightly.

Enjoy your delicious and refreshing mango ceviche!
