Citrus Ceviche


"My take on the classic Peruvian ceviche. The acidity of the citrus fruit 'cooks' the fish. A nice refreshing meal on a hot summer day. It's imperative to use only freshly caught fish!"

Fresh fish is a must for this recipe. A great pool side snack on a hot summer afternoon.

I make this with shrimp instead of halibut and it turns out great everytime. My only comment would be that the marinating time seems a little short.
