Peruvian ceviche is typically marinated in a blend of citrus juice, various aji chiles and red onion. This marinade is so intensely flavored it has a name of its own (leche de tigré, or “tiger’s milk”) and is frequently served as a hangover cure. This classic recipe uses our Peruvian Spice Blend to season a typical combination of fish, corn and sweet potatoes and is garnished in true Peruvian fashion with Cancha Serrana, oil-roasted heritage corn kernels.
