Amazing Tuna Ceviche Recipe with Shrimp

Ceviche is a raw fish dish, which is usually made with lime juice or lemon juice. Fish and citrus are natural partners. It is especially popular in South America and Mexico. You can vary the amount of chili pepper if you want a milder or spicier dish. Serve this ceviche recipe as an appetizer, a side dish, or a light lunch.

Do not marinate the shrimp because it will go touch (it also has plenty of natural fishy flavor) but marinating the tuna in lime juice “cooks” it. Why not try red snapper, halibut, or sea bass as alternative fish? Any of these would be great in a traditional ceviche recipe. The marinating time is the same and you can mix and match any of these fish. Just use whatever you can get. Fresh fish is best for ceviche recipes.

Use firm-fleshed fish if you are using something thawed and ensure you dry it well so it has a good texture. The fish is the focal point in this recipe so you want to use a good quality fish and make sure it looks and tastes nice. The onion, tomato, and oregano add freshness to this authentic ceviche recipe and you can liven it up with the addition of Tabasco sauce and jalapenos. You might not need six limes but you do need enough juice to cover the fish.
