National Ceviche Day
Ceviche is a delicious and fresh seafood dish that everyone should try. Ceviche, also known as cebiche, is popular in the Caribbean and along the coast of Latin America. It is a dish made from fresh, raw fish, which has been marinated with lime or lemon juices, sometimes both, for a delicious, citrusy taste. The acidity of the lemon or lime actually “cooks” the fish, so heat is not necessary.
It may be served with chopped onions, cilantro, and salt depending on where it is being eaten. Side dishes such as avocado, sweet potato and lettuce are often served with ceviche.
National Ceviche Day is a time to enjoy this delicious, seaborn dish.
Every good dish deserves its own day. It is a popular food in certain parts of the world but not so much in others. This day is intended to let people know what they are missing!
Archeological records show that Ceviche or something very similar appears to have been eaten around 2000 years ago. According to historians, the Moorish women from Granada brought the meal to Peru. Ceviche, which is now a popular dish, was originally the original form.
