Mahi Mahi Ceviche

Rated as 4.89 out of 5 Stars

"This mahi mahi ceviche requires a little bit of knife work, but when you consider the seasonal advantage of not using the stove, and just how tasty this really is, I think it's all worthwhile. You can also use shrimp, scallops, swordfish, and snapper."

We liked this recipe. My first time making ceviche. It was just a little too acidic for my taste, otherwise it was very tasty. I made this pretty much exactly as directed. I did drain most of th...

Love! Love! Love this ceviche! I’ve made it several times and this last time I added 1/3 cup of juice from a juice orange and it added a nice touch.
