    I've had many wonderful ceviches in Central and South America, this recipe is very close. The halibut worked great. I did make some alterations based on the ingredients I had. I replaced the mango with fresh chopped tomatoes, didn't use any parsley used all fresh cilantro, only used red onion and added celery as well as the jalepenos. I used about the same ratio of limes and lemons, slightly more lime juice. Added a little olive oil, no tequila but still may add that, sounds good. Also added a little bit of lite coconut milk, some of the best ceviche I ever had was in Colombia where they added coconut milk, very tasty. Again great recipe, it covers all the basics for a good traditional ceviche. Buen apetito!  -  23 Mar 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    The flavors were perfect, but learn from my mistake! I used frozen mango, which tasted fine, but didn't hold its shape and got a bit mushy. Not so appetizing in appearance. Stick with fresh, it will be worth it! Also, we used scallops instead of halibut and loved the results!  -  10 Apr 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Excellent recipe! I did not add the bell peppers, parsly, or tequila but it still tasted fantastic. I subbed diced roma tomatoes and cucumbers. I highly recommend using fresh halibut cheeks instead of regular halibut for this recipe. It will make it very tender. Whole Foods carries them fresh daily.  -  11 Apr 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
