Gulf of Mexico Ceviche

Fresh ceviche with fish and red onions served in a white dish

Prepare your summer saltwater catch with this refreshing and delicious ceviche recipe

I call this dish Gulf of Mexico Ceviche. With the summer months coming to a close and a freezer full of fish, it’s time to make room for hunting season. Ceviche is a great way to prepare your summer catch.

I prefer to use saltwater fish that has been frozen for a minimum of two weeks to help mitigate any parasites that may be in the fish, as ceviche is marinated or “cooked” by citrus. Now I have never had an issue with ceviche, but like with sushi and other raw fish dishes there are risks associated with consuming them.
