On June 28th, make sure to celebrate National Ceviche Day with this popular seafood dish. A Caribbean and Latin American dish that is typically made from fresh raw fish cured in citrus juices, such as lemon or lime, and spiced with ají or chili peppers. However, in South Florida we mix things up a bit. Well.. actually a whole lot. Here are some of the ceviche dishes that you can find from the traditional to the not so ordinary.
