What to Serve With Ceviche? 9 Ideas To Try!

Ceviche or cebiche is a famous Peruvian dish that isn’t only healthy but also yummy.

This Latin dish is made of seafood (usually fish and shrimp) as its main ingredient which is accompanied by lime/lemon juice, chili, coriander or coriander leaves, onion, and some seasoning.
