I've had many wonderful ceviches in Central and South America this recipe is very close. The halibut worked great. I did make some alterations based on the ingredients I had. I replaced the mango with fresh chopped tomatoes didn't use any parsley used all fresh cilantro only used red onion and added celery as well as the jalepenos. I used about the same ratio of limes and lemons slightly more lime juice. Added a little olive oil no tequila but still may add that sounds good. Also added a little bit of lite coconut milk some of the best ceviche I ever had was in Colombia where they added coconut milk very tasty. Again great recipe it covers all the basics for a good traditional ceviche. Buen apetito! Read More

The flavors were perfect but learn from my mistake! I used frozen mango which tasted fine but didn't hold its shape and got a bit mushy. Not so appetizing in appearance. Stick with fresh it will be worth it! Also we used scallops instead of halibut and loved the results! Read More

Excellent recipe! I did not add the bell peppers parsly or tequila but it still tasted fantastic. I subbed diced roma tomatoes and cucumbers. I highly recommend using fresh halibut cheeks instead of regular halibut for this recipe. It will make it very tender. Whole Foods carries them fresh daily. Read More

This was delicious! I skipped the tequila and only marinated the halibut and jalepeno. Then I mixed fresh mango red bell pepper onion garlic and tomato together and added the halibut and jalepeno. Very simple to make but would be impressive for guests. Read More

LOVED this!! I used sole fillets instead of halibut took out the tequila )the kids were going to eat it so I was worried about putting alcohol in) and halved the onion/bell pepper so there was more fish in each bite. It was sooo good! Read More
