CEBICHE ( CEVICHE ) is simply marinated shellfish, fish, vegetables and fruits in an array of numerous combinations ...

There are uncountable récipes; however, the basic Peruvian style of marinating amongst the natives on the north coast is as follows:


10 peppercorns Green
1 clove minced garlic
1 tablespoon of sea salt
1 cup of fresh cilantro herb minced finely
2 Green chili peppers ( optional )
500 ml. of fresh Lime Juice
500 grams of fresh fish and fresh shellfish of choice
2 large jícamas
1 tiny chili - called ahí amarillo - or a dried red cayenne / guindilla


1)in a mortar, with pestle, add: the peppercorns, garlic minced, cilantro minced, the sea salt, and pound the ingredients; add very gradually and carefully, the fresh squeezed lime juice.

2) slice the fish extremely finely, and place in a large glass casserole or clay ( do not use metal or plastic; the lime shall have a chemical reaction that is not positive )

3) Gradually, add the lime mixture with the herbs and spices, and just cover the fish / shellfish ..

4) peel and slice finely the jicama and add to the concoction and break up the chili pep and sprinkle.

5) MARINATE FOR NO MORE THAN 20 MINUTES, OR YOU SHALL HAVE SOME VERY UNPLEASANT CEBICHE ...

I EMPLOYED FRESHLY CAUGHT IN SEASON SHELLFISH & THE CEBICHE MARINATION IS MORE MODERN, THAN THE TRADITIONAL NORTHERN COAST OF PERU .. HOWEVER, THE SAME ... I REMOVED THE CILANTRO, AS PHIL DOES NOT CARE FOR IT VERY MUCH ... AND JICAMA IS ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO PURCHASE WHERE WE ARE ... I added a bit of red onion very finely and added substainable organic corn kernels ...


*** ENJOY ... IT IS A VERY SUBLIME EXQUISITE FIRST COURSE, APPETISER OR MAIN MEAL FOR THOSE WHO DO NOT EAT HEAVY.

Anne,

Yes, cebiche is divinity ... It is also quite diversified too.

One can add red onion, sweet potato, sustainable corn kernels, exotic fresh fruits, kiwi and mango or papaya or melón or strawberries for example ...

It is surely a favorite ... We have it quite often ... And almost any wild ocean fish shall work or shellfish ...

Calamari, squid, mussels, clams, crab, oysters, cockles, shrimp / prawns or sea scallops or both of any type, octopus, ray fish very finely sliced etcetra ...

Thank you and have lovely day ...

Margaux.
