In prior posts I have explored how there is a popular perception that something might be “the national dish” of a particular country, when in reality there is usually not any official designation. That having been said, the national dish of Peru (not really, but play along) is Ceviche.

This method of preparing shellfish and other seafood in acid (typically lemon and/or lime juice) is centuries old and practiced around the world.


Use fresh limes as you are likely to have stronger acidity.


Making the salsa.


Adding the ceviche shrimp.


These are the best tacos!

Ceviche-Style Shrimp and Avocado Tacos

3 limes
1 cup chopped seeded tomato

3 garlic cloves, minced

Finely grate rind from limes to measure 1 tablespoon; juice limes to measure 1/4 cup. Place rind and juice in a large bowl. Add tomato and remaining ingredients except tortillas; toss well to combine. Cover and chill for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Heat tortillas according to package directions. Spoon about 1/2 cup shrimp mixture down center of each tortilla; fold in half. Serve immediately.
