Sicilian orange fish ceviche. Had long wanted to experiment with the ceviche. I love raw fish and this Peruvian national dish drew me in so long. Expected just to find the right fish and decide what to put in my ceviche. Traditionally it is a white fish cut into chunks that is marinated in lime juice (much gentler lemon), accompanied by sweet peppers, chillies, onion slices and fruit according to your taste. Just take care that the fish you use is already killed or kill it yourself in the freezer at -20 degrees for 4 days. For those who love raw fish, Ceviche is a great alternative to HOMEMADE SUSHI, or, the SALMON TARTARE WITH RED RICE AND AVOCADO. But also to the POKE’ HAWAIAN TUNA o al POKE’ SALMON BOWL.
I have decided to prepare my ceviche with fillets of red mullet and Red prawns of Mazara del Vallo, lime, Chili, Peppers, Ginger, avocado, Sicilian Pgi blood oranges, red onion. And I accompanied the ceviche with a fresh mixed salad and fennel. I cut red mullet and shrimp into medium-sized pieces. And I let the orange ceviche marinate for an hour or so with the lime juice, the chilli and ginger. Then I seasoned with extra virgin olive oil of Garda, delicate and light so as not to cover up the flavor of the fish. Oranges go perfectly with this recipe because they are sweet and slightly sour, the fennel and the salad give freshness.
I called the dish is Ceviche in black and white’ because I have prepared two different pictures have a very enjoyable. One in a white plate and one in a black plate and, not knowing decide which I liked more, I made the post with photographs of both. You which you prefer? If you love hors d'oeuvres of raw fish, also check out the TATAKI SALMON and the MARINATED ANCHOVIES. over, Obviously, at SUSHI, and you can also found the VIDEO RECIPE on my YouTube channel. Have a good day!
