Re: Cerviche

Hi! Thanks for your response. They also do it in Polynesia (eg Tahiti) which is where the coconut milk comes into my elusive dish and since New Caledonia, though mainly Melanesian, is a French outpost, too.

My daughter did voluntary work for 2 months (mainly in Peru but some in Argentinia) 2 yrs ago.

She spent 5 months (mainly in Kenya) last year doing the same type of work during her gap year.

Nice talking with you!

Re: Cerviche

hi maree

my mexican mother-in-law makes this using peeled prawns but the authentic recipe calls for mackerel. you can use pretty much any fish you like.

cube the fish fillets into small dice, mixed with finely chopped onion, garlic, fresh ground black pepper, freshly squeezed lime juice and chopped red chilli pepper. allow to marinate for 4-5 hours in the fridge.

before serving add some chopped tomato (small dice), fresh chopped coriander and a squirt of ketchup(!). no honestly.

check for seasoning and salt to taste. if you add the salt at the beggining you might end up with a mushy pulp.

Re: Cerviche

Thank you! Bought extra seafood for Good Friday. Will try it with some cubed barramundi. Let you know how it goes.
