Prepare a basic Peruvian ceviche (raw fish marinated with lime juice)

If you're a fan of sushi, then you have to try out this delicious raw fish recipe. It's not your typical raw fish. It's called ceviche, and it's a South American (in this case, Peruvian) dish of marinated raw fish. It's an interesting process where you don't cook the food on the stove or in the oven, but instead you marinate your ingredients in lime juice, which basically "cooks" the raw fish. A very fresh dish, perfect for anytime you want something a little lighter for a meal or a snack.
