Seafood Fun Facts: A Look at Ceviche

Seafood Fun Facts: A Look at Ceviche

If you are looking to reduce your consumption of meat, then there are other ways to get your protein, especially if you want to switch to a pescetarian-based diet! Here is a better look at what ceviche is supposed to be!

Even seafood lovers might not know everything there is to know about their favorite type of sustenance. If you are looking to reduce your consumption of meat, then there are other ways to get your protein, especially if you want to switch to a pescetarian-based diet! Here is a better look at what ceviche is supposed to be!

Where It Comes From Originally 

Speculation reigns over the true origins of ceviche. Although it is closely associated with Latin America, it has roots with the Inca, the Polynesians, and even the Moors of Northern Africa. Still, ceviche has become a favorite all over the world. In Peru, it has been named the national dish! This ceviche is a kicking blend of citrus and chili oil marinating some raw fish. Yams are also served on the side, almost like a different version of fish and chips. In Ecuador, this dish focuses on shrimp paired with corn instead. Finally, in Costa Rica, sea bass is marinated in a lime-vinegar baste, while in Mexico, it’s all about shrimp or tilapia with tortillas on the side.  

How to Enjoy 

Sometimes, it can be hard to find high-quality ceviche. That means it’s a rare opportunity to pick up a new skill – learning to prepare it at home! As amazing as restaurant-grade ceviche is, the thrill of cooking homemade seafood dishes can help make up the difference as you learn what to do. Seafood and herbs come together to make some magic. Vegetables add another dimension, especially if you want to roll up some sushi! 

Different Preparation Methods

Since ceviche is incredibly versatile, it’s easy to create a dish that whets your appetite. Oily fish such as red drum, sea trout, and porgy make great ceviche. Flaky fish like flounder, black sea bass, and pink snapper are excellent ideas as well
