My family spends lots of time on the coast and we’re always looking to use fresh fish in ways that highlight natural flavors. This ceviche was automatically a hit! We’ve only been making it for a few years but it quickly became a favorite. Bonus is that it doesn’t require any actual cooking! The citric acid of the lime and orange “cooks” the fish through a process called denaturation, resulting in a final product that is delicious and safe to eat. For best results, use the freshest fish possible.
