  • Origin: Ancient Incan food, area of South America that is currently Peru and Ecuador
  • Made with a technique called escabeche where the food is softened by marinating it in vinegar, citrus and spices.
    • This process is linked to Muslim heritage that was brought over from Spain.
    • The chemical process of  escabeche style marinating with the citrus/acid is similar to what happens to fish when cooked (turns opaque and becomes firm)
  • Traditionally fish is the main ingredient, but often other types of seafood are used , like shrimp
  • The salsa like dish is served many different ways (often in a crystal bow and toothpicks).  Historically it was served alongside slices of cold sweet potato & corn on the cob, or with popcorn and nuts. It is often served now with tortilla chips or pita. Because of its versitility, It is often used as a dish to mix with other styles of food – example would be Japanese fusion.
