RonnaEats | Ceviche and Chicharron de Pescado

When in Peru, I have to eat ceviche! The traditional home of this famous dish, and living by the beach for a month, I was excited for all the fresh fish and seafood I get to have in Zorritos. I made sure to learn how to tell servers that I was allergic to crustaceans, though I broke it down to shrimps and crabs, “Soy alérgico a los camarones y cangrejos.”

Ceviche is fresh, raw fish marinated with lime or lemon juice, salsa criolla (pickled red onion), tomatoes, aji (peppers) and various herbs including cilantro (coriander). It’s light, refreshing and so easy to prepare at home. The Pacific Island version, which adds coconut cream follows a similar recipe.
