I bought some peruvian aji amarillo on the internet (La tienda) then I bought some fish filets at the hanover fish market.
I cut it into small pieces and marinated it with
mandarin orange slices
onion
red pepper
fish sauce
cilantro
parsley
salt
pepper
lime juice (3 limes)
olive oil
aji amarillo (spicy peruvian yellow pepper)

ceviche

It really depends on your liking (heritage) if you eat it right away or in the next several hours. In peru they briefly marinade and eat almost like sashimi, in PR we let it sit longer (also cut it bigger)
Either way it is tasty, great citrus flavored fish.

It's beautiful looking! Does the mandarin make it a lot sweeter?

And I'm so intrigued by the fact you add a dash of fish sauce. I wonder myself how it's noticed in the flavor. Does it just add a bit of umami or does it make it a lot more salty? Thanks for sharing!

The fascinating thing about peruvian cuisine (which I am no expert in just a fan) is the Japanese and oriental influence on the Spanish and original andean cooking. The tangerines added a nice crunch and sweetnesss without sweetening the ceviche itself
