Ceviches?

When I was in Mexico last month, I had a seafood ceviche and it was awesome, but I'm not entirely sure, actually I'm totally sure that I have no idea what a ceviche is.

Can someone explain this concept to me?

Thanks!

    Ceviche is nothing more than a citrus marinated seafood salad. Any citrus juice or combination of juices can be used, along with some salt, to marinate -- actually to virtually cook -- the fish. Some ceviches (it's also spelled seviche) include chiles, onions -- that sort of thing. I've made ceviche with scallops, yellowtail, dolphin an marlin, among other fishes.

    Aha!

    Thank you very much.  The one I had  contained some wonderful octopus...my gods...it was phenomenal.

    I just noticed while I was down there that everybody sold "ceviches," and even though I love Mexican food, I'd never heard of it.

    We used to eat ceviche sold from food trailers on the beach in Ecuador. Yummy!

    One of the best I've ever eaten was prepared as an accident.
     
    My father and I had been fishing and caught a few redfish.  I wanted grilled fish, so I marinated the redfish fillets in lime juice and seasonings.  After a few beverages and a nap I noticed the end parts of the redfish were white and firm.  We tasted and enjoyed the freshness of the fish.  The rest were grilled to satisfaction.

    C and C  (Cerveza and Ceviche) was the standard 'Lunch' served aboard the day trip fishing boats out of Ensenada, BC when we went fishing. The crew used large  Sardines or Anchovies filets from the Live-Bait tanks with onion pieces, all soaked for a few hours in Lime Juice. If we got lucky early enough in the day, we could slice up some Yellowtail or Dorado in place of the Bait-fish.

    We would bring along a box of Ritz Crackers to use in place of utensils. Plenty of Tecate made the day a lot of fun!

    Make your Bride a Peanut Butter & Jelly Sandwich and make yourself  some Ceviche Cocktail! My wife only eats shrimp cocktail and lobster tails. I eat any seafood except octopus and eel. We each do our own thing!

    PBJ? Lol.

    I do love me some octopus though...sashimi, nigiri, and ceviche is how I've had that delightfully tasting creature.

    She gets all weirded out to hear me even speak of it!

    Many years ago I unfortunately had a reallt bad shrimp ceviche that turned me off for awhile.  Years later I gave it a shot again and realized that I loved cerviche, I simply must have had a bad batch.

    Scallop is now one of my favorite, with a little habanero pepper in there.  Baby octopus, lobster, sweet shrimp, I love them all.

    Ceviche is sorta like the herring you get in a jar of vinegar, only lime juice is better than vinegar. It's the whole soak-it-in-acid thing.

    Yep, plenty of Cilantro in this stuff Chewer. I also love a good spicy Mexican shrimp cocktail w/ plenty of Cilantro. That probably has a Mexican name but I don't know it.

    BU Mitch,
    I don't know where you ate Ceviche', but if it was sorta like Pickled Herring, you were in the wrong place!" />" />
     
    Saying Ceviche' is sorta like Pickled Herring is like saying a Peter Luger's Hamburger is sorta like a Big Mac." />" />

    Stopped in to a new Mexican restaurant, El Jimador, in Clemson this afternoon. Saw ceviche on the menu and decided to go for it. This ceviche was made with shrimp, tomatoes and onions, and lots of cilantro. I thought it was delicious, and I think it's going to be my go-to Mexican lunch on hot days like today. It was so light and refreshing.
