I was at a local Dallas spot Aw Shucks Oyster Bar in Greenville Avenue. I would become a regular at Aw Shucks but mainly staying in my lane with the gumbo, gulf oysters and a can of Tecate served.
Back in my college days I was listening to a lot of my fellow St. Mark’s alum Steve Miller or any number of hip hop acts that have sampled his music including EMD, the Get Boys, Na's, and Ice Cube. My buddy Luke introduced me to The Steve Miller Band back in middle school.
But then they recognized many of their favorite hip hop songs were based on cats like Steve Miller and I got a pass. Peruvian ceviche is actually more filling and can be eaten as a main dish vs. the more appetizer like of most other regions.
Most ceviche recipes are enjoyed with tortilla chips as an appetizer. The presence of the sweet potatoes and corn combined with a meaty fish like grouper provides more substance and makes the version of ceviche as a main dish.
Ice helps keep fish fresh and protects the texture and flavor. If you prefer softer, mushy texture then let the fish sit longer.

Studies of ancient Roche culture in the north of Peru suggest that people would eat fish and seafood cured in chichi. The Spanish conquistadors are said to have introduced the idea of using lemon and garlic to create the marinated seafood dish we know and love today.
As we know, the Arabs had a profound impact on the culture of the Mediterranean coast, so it wouldn’t be surprising if the method of curing meat in acid spilled over into the seafood-based cuisine of southern Italy and Spain. Whether ceviche came from the Roche civilization or from the shores of Arabian-ruled Sicily (or both), the dish has taken on a number of forms throughout Latin America.
Ceviche can be found along the coast literally from Mexico to Chile, and is even making an appearance in upscale eateries in California and New York, in part thanks to Gaston Curio’s culinary PR machine. Each region has its own take on ceviche, such as adding ketchup and popcorn in Ecuador or avocado and fried tortillas in Mexico.
Even within Peru, ceviche can be served with a number of varieties of sweet potato, corn, CANCA, fried or boiled yucca, and even in meat-free forms like mushrooms. If you’d like to try making ceviche at home, keep in mind that while the dish uses just a few key ingredients, everything needs to be as fresh as possible.
