Ceviche De Corvina

READY IN: 24hrs 15mins
Recipe by Jessica K

When I lived in Panama the fishmongers came to your door with their ice chests. You could actually buy corvina or even already made ceviche from them for like a total of $2. This is the only recipe i've come across that DOES NOT have tomatoes in it!! the fisherman's ceviche NEVER had that in it and any store down there never had it in it that i can remember. now on to an empanada recipe.. (Cook time is refrigeration time)

Easy to make and delicious. You should make it with fish, which is rich in flavours. I have used tilapia and the spices were a bit too dominant. But it was my choice. I like the combination of flavours in the marindae and will sure make it again.
