Ceviche is Peru's national dish, and although found in other countries, the Peruvian version is widely considered to be...'The Daddy'! Simple to prepare and quick to 'cook' (it isn't raw after all, the lime juice cooks the fish); it's a riot of zingy flavours - chilli and lime, coriander and fresh onions. The perfect summer dish. Also worth looking out for are some other versions such as ceviche amarillo (yellow ceviche) and ceviche nikkei (with a Japanese-inspired twist). Don't even think about missing out the rocoto chilli - it's what lifts this dish to being authentically Peruvian instead of just a western take on a real classic. Serves 4.
