A classic Latin American dish - the seafood is cooked by the acidity of the lime juice. This is so easy to make, but will impress even the most discerning of guests! Fresh ingredients are a must in this recipe.

A very impressive and delicious recipe for how simple it is! Just crush the garlic with the side of a chef's knife blade instead of chopping it, and keep the sprigs of rosemary whole - this allows them to be easily removed before serving.
