Rockfish Ceviche

Perlita, one of THE best people that I have met in San Diego, taught me how to make this recipe. She usually makes it with shrimp, and it’s delicious. However not that long ago, my brother and sister in-law, came to visit us. During their visit, my husband and I decided to take them to the fish market, and we bought Rockfish. After a delicious dinner prepared by my brother-in-law, I decided to try Perlita’s ceviche recipe with rockfish instead of shrimp.

I just want to thank Perlita for sharing this recipe with me. I really think that life put Perlita in my path; to learn how to be kind, positive, and light-hearted. She is always surprising me with homemade meals and interesting enough they always come when I have had a long day. If you are obsessed with ceviche, like me, I would recommend trying this recipe. You can also stick with shrimp, and make it as tasty as Perlita does.
