Authentic ceviche dishes are not supposed to be complicated. Simply get the freshest fish and cook in citrus juice for a short time, then combine with flavourful ingredients for a delicious and healthy seafood dish. Enjoy this delicious Mushroom and Kingklip Ceviche.
250g kingklip / firm white fish, skinless
(You can also use salmon, tuna, yellowtail or prawns. Select your choice of fish or seafood based on the freshness. You are essentially just curing the fish in acid and want the highest quality, freshest produce you can get your hands on. So call the fishmonger first, find out what is fresh and then choose which fish to go with!)
