Ceviche has always been one of my favorite dishes. In different Latin American countries ceviche is prepared a bit differently. In Guatemala fish, shrimp or other types of seafood are marinated and cooked in lime juice and combined with onion and tomato. I love that this dish is so versatile and you can get creative and add other ingredients.

On this occasion I decided to make the ceviche using my favorite fish: tuna. I also added some avocado just before serving to complement because I just love the way the avocado and tuna taste when they are paired together.

This ceviche is perfect accompanied by a cold beer or michelada (beer cocktail). This is so easy to make and you can use your favorite fish. You can also check out my recipe for the traditional Guatemalan ceviche here or my tuna ceviche tacos here.
