Ceviche is citrus-marinated seafood, and is popular throughout Latin America. It makes a deliciously different starter. Many different types of seafood can be used. Here, halibut combines with mango and fresh herbs for an unbeatable combination.
I've had many wonderful ceviches in Central and South America, this recipe is very close. The halibut worked great. I did make some alterations based on the ingredients I had. I replaced the mango with fresh chopped tomatoes, didn't use any parsley used all fresh cilantro, only used red onion and added celery as well as the jalepenos. I used about the same ratio of limes and lemons, slightly more lime juice. Added a little olive oil, no tequila but still may add that, sounds good. Also added a little bit of lite coconut milk, some of the best ceviche I ever had was in Colombia where they added coconut milk, very tasty. Again great recipe, it covers all the basics for a good traditional ceviche. Buen apetito! - 23 Mar 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
The flavors were perfect, but learn from my mistake! I used frozen mango, which tasted fine, but didn't hold its shape and got a bit mushy. Not so appetizing in appearance. Stick with fresh, it will be worth it! Also, we used scallops instead of halibut and loved the results! - 10 Apr 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Excellent recipe! I did not add the bell peppers, parsly, or tequila but it still tasted fantastic. I subbed diced roma tomatoes and cucumbers. I highly recommend using fresh halibut cheeks instead of regular halibut for this recipe. It will make it very tender. Whole Foods carries them fresh daily. - 11 Apr 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
