That Ceviche Has Been Hiding From Me Houston Texas
Houston Texas if you have been following my blog then you know I like to eat. Therefore, I found it imperative to discuss this thing called ceviche. It is said that ceviche originated from the Viceroyalty of Peru which during the 16th and 18th century was a colonial district of Spain. However, both Chile and Peru were governed by the Viceroyalty so both places take credit for being the home of ceviche’s origin. Nowadays ceviche has become very popular in South and Central America.
Houston Tx let us begin by defining the term ceviche. It is defined by many as different things, but consistently you will find it is characterized as raw seafood that is marinated in a citrus based sauce. In more traditional settings cubed fish is the seafood of choice. The citrus based sauce is usually lime and lemon juice although other citrus sources can be used too. After having marinated in the citrus sauce for some time the seafood is pickled and usually taste as though it has been cooked to some degree. Depending on the fish or seafood being used the marinating time could take several hours or just minutes. Other ingredients in this dish may include salt, onion, Andean spices and chile(the spice). Ceviche is one of those dishes that varies greatly from region to region with regard to how it is prepared. That is mostly due to its grown popularity over the years.
In Houston Texas on the northwest side there is a restaurant called Red Onion Seafood y Mas has ceviche for days. There are some combinations and choices there guaranteed to make the most distinguished palates conclude. The waiter Andrew (the only Caucasian male there I think) was one of the sweetest people you will ever meet and he makes sure you are well taken care of while dining. If you are more downtown Houston TX oriented then The Samba Grill will probably tickle your fancy. They too have a version of ceviche that is delightful as well. No list of choices there but they have delicious ceviche.
