Ceviche


Ceviche is a super easy and healthy meal to prepare. It's a very popular dish in Latin America, predominantly in Peru. Basically, the seafood is cooked in lime juice, so no need to cook anything. Here is how you can prepare it:

Ingredients:

Chopped Green Onions

Cilantro

4 Limes

1/4 Red Onion

Salt & Black Pepper

Let the Snapper soak in the lime juice with all the other ingredients for about 15-20 minutes so that it gets cooked.

Sometimes I add orange peppers, pickled onions and other seafood such as scallops and shrimp.
