Ceviche

Richard.Blaine's picture
This is my entry into the Tasty Memories Competition. It is a twist on a ceviche recipe I first saw Jen make using Tilapia. I really like her recipe and I decided to make the dish with Swai instead of Tilapia and I used Southeast Asian flavors and Jens Juice combo short the pineapple juice! Try this ceviche recipe I am sure you will LOVE it!
