Day 164 of 365 Thing To Do in Panama. Enjoy for Ceviche for a Snack or Meal!
Ceviche is a popular seafood dish in Panama countries. It is often sold as an appetizer or a snack. It can be made with most types of fin fish, generally delicate white fish like seabass or red snapper. It is also often made up of shrimp or octopus and is served with with salted crackers or fried green plantains. Panama.Ceviche is a raw fish marinated in the juice of a combination of limes, lemons and sour oranges, along with vinegar. The acid from the fruit “cooks,” or rather pickles the fish in a short amount of time, thereby eliminating the need for heating. Simultaneously, the citric acid serves to break down the fibers of the fish and create a more tender texture. The acid also prevents the growth of microorganisms in the fish, so it can be stored for longer. Because of this “cooking,” ceviche is NOT sushi.
