    I made this dish as an appetizer for my girlfriend's parents and it was an absolute hit. And her dad is Ecuadorian, so he's had his fair share of excellent ceviches and he exclaimed that this was one of the best ones he's ever had. And it was very easy to prepare!  -  12 Feb 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    Excellent ceviche recipe - tangy, perfect amount of spice, great citrus kick, and easy to make too. Love all the crunchy fresh veggies too.  -  21 Jul 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
