What is ceviche?

Ceviche is a Latin American seafood dish. It is usually made with raw fish or shellfish cooked in lemon or other citrus juice. It is seasoned with chiles, fresh or dried herbs, and other aromatics.

There a lot of types of ceviches, and each Latin American country has its version of it. There are Peruvian, Ecuatorian, Chilean, Colombian, and of course, the Mexican version. It has fresh, bright flavors and is usually served as an appetizer.

First, slice the onion and add lemon juice to it. In the meantime, peel and slice the mango. Then, add the mango to the onion, season it, and mix well. Finish it with cilantro.

You can serve it individually or in a big salad bowl, but always make sure to serve it with crunchy tortilla chips or tostadas.

Which type of mango is best for ceviche?

The best mangoes for ceviche are mangos with firm flesh, or you could use a bit under-ripe mangos so they can hold their shape in the dish. For this dish or salsas, I love Tommy mangoes or any other variety that has a greenish peel tone and firm flesh.

How to peel a mango?

  • Choose the Right Mango: Make sure your mango is ripe. It should feel slightly soft when pressed gently.
  • Wash the Mango: Rinse the mango under running water to remove any dirt or residue.
  • Peel the mango. Use a paring knife or vegetable peeler to remove the skin gently.
  • Cut the Mango: Place the mango on a cutting board with the stem side down. Find the tallest line of the mango and position your knife to one side of the center. Cut down, guiding your knife along the flat, oval-shaped seed. Repeat on the other side. You will end up with three pieces: two halves and a middle section with the seed.
  • Slice the Mango: To julienne the flesh, slice the mango halves into thin strips.
  • Deal with the Seed: Trim as much mango flesh around the seed as possible for the middle section. Slice these pieces as well.

tips for the best mango ceviche

  • This ceviche is best eaten the day it is prepared.
  • Red onions are best but you can use yellow or white onion. Do not use sweet onions here.
  • Serve it with tostadas, corn chips, homemade crackers, or potato chips.
  • Remove the seeds and veins from the serrano chili pepper or jalapeño if you don’t want your ceviche to be very spicy.
  • I like to serve this vegan dish in two different ways: as individual appetizers in small glasses or for big crowds in a big salad bowl.
  • It also tastes amazing as a salad or over quinoa, white or brown rice.
