Well I have tried few and Ceviches are a popular snack from Mexico to Peru including the Caribbean islands
S.Asians may like this dish since it uses known ingredients and fish or prawns can be substituted but of course only the freshest of seafoods is used

Panamanian ceviche
4lbs fresh firm white fish filleted
4 cups of lemon juice or lime
2 large salad onions chopped
Salt to taste or may be fish sauce
chillie thinly sliced to taste
Culantro chopped (optional) is known in the caribbeans as Fitweed but cilantro can be used instead

Method:
Cut fillets in small pieces.
Add lemon or lime juice, salt, onions, chillies and coriander stirring with a wooden spoon.
Leave the fish to cook between 12 to 24 hours before serving.

Peruvian ceviche

2 pounds of firm white fish

It looks similar to the filipino version just that the other one uses vinegar. I love this dish Smile Will give your version a try which I think will be milder than using vinegar.

Thanks piroshok for sharing Smile

Well I may have know this Gina
Hope someone else may take on the recipe
To make it Mexican Chipolte adobo or Jalapenos are added for a really hot taste. I rather like japalenos they are very meaty chillies and have a good bite too

yes..I cannot take raw fish..but others can. I wanted to try making the dishes others shared here too.

I am trying to imagine how this dish looks like. Do you have a photo of it or a link elsewhere?

My teen and hubby takes raw fish. its only me and my youngest daughter who are not raw fish eaters. We get bad tummy aches if we did Wink

Basically yes but perhaps Gina refers to heat treatment which in this case it is not.
