Country: Venezuela, Mexico
Story: Originating in Venezuela and its coasts, natives of the region believe it offers aphrodisiac properties provided by the seafood included in its preparation. Mostly sold as street food in the form of pickles in a jar in Venezuela, it eventually made its way to Mexico and along the way became more of a ceviche. This version of the recipe is popular in many countries now and is the style of our version here at Alma.
Preparation: Fresh Snapper is marinated in the tomato broth to flavor the fish. Then the fish and the tomato broth is put on the plate and garnished with Pepino, Aguacate, Chile Dulce, Culantro and jalapeno.
