Ceviche is basically citrus marinated and cooked seafood. The citric acid in the fruit juice causes the proteins in the seafood to become denatured, essentially cooking it without any heat. The mango in this ceviche adds a pleasant sweetness to this dish. Serve with a squeeze of fresh lime juice along with deep fried tortillas and enjoy!
