    I wasn't sure at first if I liked it. I did have to add a little more salt but after marinating overnight I loved it. I brought some to share at a picnic and it was a hit, even with a one year old! One friend said it was the best ceviche she ever had!! I tend to like mine spicier but this was super fresh and delicious, I will add some hot sauce just to my portion.
    Authentic.... flavorful.... and a great summer dish.... I use tilapia as it is often a little less expensive and more readily available. Plus it soaks up the flavors so well..... Pairs well with a dark mexican beer.....
    This is an authetic Baja ceviche recepie just like mom makes(we're from Baja). Great balance of flavors it was missing nothing, follow the recepie or you can add shirmp you can't miss. Pile high on a tostda a dash of hot sauce like tapatio a cold mexican beer and hear the ocean splash against the arco in Cabo.
    This is very similar to the way I usually make ceviche, but with a few additional ingredients, so I thought I'd give this a try for a change of pace. This is the first time I've included cucumber, oregano, and avocado. It was quite good. I definitely liked the addition of the avocado. At first I couldn't decide if the cucumber was adding much to the mix of flavors. But, now I'm thinking that the cucumber adds to the freshness of the dish and counterbalances some of the heat from the serrano chiles. I'll definitely use this recipe again. Other notes: I used 2 cloves of garlic instead of 1, and 3 serrano chiles instead of 4, but that's the beauty of ceviche - it can be so easily tweaked to individual taste.
    Wanted some Ceviche like we had on vacation in Costa Maya Mexico. This recipe fit the bill nicely! No fish, used shrimp. Yummmmmm......
    Yum! I wanted ceviche today and found this recipe. It is exactly what I was wishing for!!!
    Great recipe! Absolutely delicious!
    Thank you for posting:)
    Exactly the kind of recipe used by "mama" and in south-of-the-border restaurants. I'm all about experimenting with extra ingredients, but why mess with a recipe perfected by Mexican fishermen over decades. Sometimes simple is best and this is the one that will leave you longing for a Corona and a beach.
    I was searching for a recipe similar to one I had in a Mexican restuarant in DC - basic fish marinated in citrus with some Spanish/Mexican flavors, and no weird extra ingredients. This is perfect. It is not sweet, like some ceviche I've tried (yuck). Fresh and delicious!
    This is very similar to the ceviche in Baja, CA. Easy, fresh and a no-brainer. No bass, so I used snapper. Everyone wanted the recipe!
