Ceviche is typically made from fresh raw fish cured in citrus juices, such as lemon or lime, and spiced with chili peppers. Additional seasonings, such as chopped onions, salt, and coriander, may also be added. Ceviche is usually accompanied by side dishes that complement its flavors, such as sweet potato, lettuce, corn, avocado or plaintain As the dish is not cooked with heat, it must be prepared fresh to minimize the risk of food poisoning, (wikipedia)
