Explanation:

[STC00799] Ceviche has been consumed in some form by indigenous people of Peru for at least the past two thousand years, making it one of the country’s longest standing culinary traditions. Ceviche is prepared by starting with chunks of raw fish, which are then marinated for a period of time in a mixture of citrus juices and other ingredients, which may include onion, jalapeo, or fruit. The fish has a “hot” cooking experience without the use of heat thanks to the acid in the marinade. Ceviche is a dish that originated in Peru and is traditionally cooked with sea bass. However, throughout Latin America, there are many different varieties of ceviche made with shrimp or squid. It’s typically consumed cold, with either chips or crackers, as a side dish. The leftover marinade is known as ‘leche de tigre,’ meaning ‘tiger’s milk,’ and Peruvians are known to mix it with pisco (a type of brandy) to make a spicy, briny cocktail.
