Skip the cooking with this delicious & easy fish ceviche (EXCLUSIVE RECIPE)
When I think of Peru, the first thing that comes to my mind is a delicious chupe de camarones (shrimp soup), papas a la huancaína and of course the star of the Peruvian cuisine: ceviche. Without any doubt Peru, which today celebrates its independence, offers one of the richest and most unique cuisines of the world.

They gave me this recipe for ceviche with a recommendation: always use fresh fish, preferably one that was swimming in the ocean last night. This means no frozen fish when it comes to ceviche!
