Mealthy tip:

Instead of serving with chips, try slices of cool cucumbers for a healthy dipping option. You could also make your own homemade baked tortilla chips or tostadas as well. Top your ceviche with freshly sliced avocado for a nice complement to the heat of the peppers. Ceviche is often made with white fish. Try our Ceviche with Watermelon, Cucumber, and Serrano Chile recipe here on Mealthy for a white fish version!

I love ceviche, but I never thought to add Worcestershire sauce to it. Maybe I thought it felt too Bloody Mary like. I really enjoyed it. However, I did add some lime "cooked" bay scallops and cooked dungeness crab to the mix. Ceviche is usually the easiest snack I make to date.

I absolutely love ceviche, but this was my first time preparing it. It's definitely one of my favorite snacks to make, especially in the summer. This is the perfect dish for entertaining guests or to bring to a potluck. This recipe was really easy and flavorful. My new favorite!
