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 it is usually served as an appetizer.

Which type of mango is best for ceviche?

The best mangoes for ceviche are mangos with firm flesh or you could use mangos that are a bit under-ripe 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.


The easiest way to peel a mango is with a vegetable peeler or a very sharp pairing knife.

Either method works great, just be sure to peel them carefully and to remove only the peel, keep as much flesh as possible.

tips, tricks & other recipes

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