Ceviche is everything summer. Before the whole poke bowl craze, ceviche was my go-to. Originating in Peru, this refreshing fish dish has found its way, and flavours, into other Latin-American cuisines including Mexican dishes. The base is fresh raw fish, citrus juices and hot peppers. The citrus juice “cooks” the raw fish. Super easy to make.

Chef Rodrigo Aguillar (El Rey Mezcal Bar, Toronto) recently partnered with Sol Beer Canada throughout this summer sharing his authentic recipes. This delicious ceviche recipe is great for entertaining or a light dinner on a hot summer’s night and a great twist on #TacoTuesday.
