As I have already told you, I am experimenting with new things in my kitchen and I am addicted to my new book: Cru Carpaccios, Tártaros e Ceviches. This book is basically a guide on how to make Carpaccios, Ceviches, and Tartars.
The enthusiasm for raw fish seems unstoppable and so I made one more ceviche. This time the target was the magnificent tuna fish.
I enjoyed the tuna ceviche, but I have to admit that my favorite is still the White Fish Ceviche. I do not know if I was simply not expecting the final result to be so good or if I just thought that only the most skillful Chefs would be able to turn a white fish into a wonderful ceviche.
But stories aside, what I really want is for you to try these ceviches and tell me which is your favorite.
Do you accept the challenge?
