What is the best ceviche you ever had? How do you like to make it at home?

I have made it home a few times but this is a food I prefer out. Homemade poke is way easier.

I tend to like ceviche with avocado, citrus or mango, chilis and something crunchy!

I usually eat it at Mexican restaurants and love it with tortilla chips and a cold Tecate.

Best ceviche I ever had was on a one day culinary tour in Lima, Peru. The pisco sour was damned good, too.

I learned to make it with salmon, but my favorite is a mix of snapper and scallops. I use lime juice, EVOO, red onion, avocado, some form of chili, cilantro (or not), and salt.

This is correct. Ceviche is a Peruvian dish and they make it the best.

I watched a Peruvian chef making ceviche and he said something that has stuck with me. He said he only squeezes a lime wedge once. Squeezing extra hard and/or multiple times to try to get every drop of juice out gets some of the bitterness from the peel into the juice and damages the bright flavor of the lime juice. This applies for anything that uses lime juice. My gin and tonics taste so much better now that I squeeze each lime wedge just once.

I gotta agree - Peruvian ceviches are the best I've had. Especially those made with a splash of aji Amarillo.

Yes - love pisco sour. To me Peruvian cuisine is one of those world class cuisines where virtually everything in it is good - like Italian and Japanese.
