Bite with Belkys: Peruvian Ceviche
Mahi-mahi fresh from the sea and marinated to perfection. A chef makes a Peruvian classic as we grab a Bite with Belkys.
The Chef: Carlos Brescia
The Restaurant: Dr Limon in Kendall
The Dish: Peruvian Ceviche
1 large sweet potato
1 ear large kernel Peruvian corn
1 pound very fresh fish -- mahi-mahi, flounder, sea bass or red snapper
1/2 sliced purple onion
2 tsp kosher salt
1 tsp. minced garlic
1 cups fresh lime juice (preferably Key lime)
1 tbs. minced cilantro
1 tsp. finely minced chili pepper (or other hot pepper)
2 small wedges lettuce
1 tbs. Cancha (toasted corn
Method of Preparation:
-Start by putting sweet potatoes in a pot of boiling water. In a separate pot of boiling water, add Peruvian large kernel corn. When they're done, set aside to cool. Peel the potato and cut it into 1/2 inch thick pieces. Set potatoes and corn aside.
- Cut a fresh filet of mahi-mahi (or other white fish) into even bite-sized pieces. Place in a bowl and add fresh cilantro, chopped red onion, chili pepper, salt and garlic. Mix well.
- Add fresh lime juice and mix again. Make sure it's completely covered by the lime juice, which will marinate the fish in just a couple of minutes.
Place the Ceviche on top of a wedge of lettuce and pour the marinade over it. Garnish with more onion, toasted corn, the Peruvian corn and chunk of sweet potato.
