    Ceviche Recipe
    Authentic Mexican Food Fish Recipe

    Ceviche, or Seviche, comes originally from Polynesia and has undergone changes that make it a Mexican food dish. Mexicans prefer to make Ceviche using mackerel or pompano which are considered fat fish. Limes are preferred foe this recipe, although lemons may be used, since both contain the citric acid that "cooks" the fish and shrimp.
