Ceviche At Costas Inn

Costas Inn’s signature recipe features a delectable combination of fresh calamari, shrimp, and scallops marinated in freshly squeezed lemon and lime juices. The citrus enhances the seafood flavors, providing a burst of freshness. We also add onions, tomatoes, peppers, and herbs to enhance the flavor. 

Where Does Ceviche Originate From?

Ceviche is a delectable seafood dish widely popular throughout Latin America. This tangy meal is traditionally made with raw fish and is known by different names such as cebiche, cebiche, or seviche. While its origin is debatable, it is widely accepted that Peru is the birthplace of ceviche, where it has been declared the national food.

What Exactly Does Ceviche Taste Like?

Ceviche is known for its bold and vibrant flavors. This dish is traditionally made by marinating raw fish or seafood in citrus juices, such as lime or lemon, which gives it a refreshing and zesty taste. The acidic marinade helps “cook” the fish, making it firm while providing a fresh flavor. Also, ceviche is often seasoned with fresh herbs like cilantro and spicy peppers like jalapenos, which add flavor to the dish. Despite its small portion size, ceviche is packed with protein, omega-3 fatty acids, and vitamins, making it a healthy and satisfying meal option.
