Now, who doesn’t like ceviche? It’s just one of those things that I rank up there with baths, wine, and chocolate. And like there’s no such thing as bad chocolate, the same is true of ceviche. Basically, don’t let the exotic name scare you. Ceviche is as easy to make, as it is fun to get creative with. I never make it the same way twice, unless I’m forced to, and this is one variation that is often requested. Try it for yourself, and let me know what you think. As always, I love seeing photos, so please don’t hesitate to send us yours.
