Peruvians are celebrating today the Day of  Ceviche, seeking to encourage the consumption of this flagship dish, prepared with fresh fish fillets, lemon, sliced onion and ají (Peruvian chili).

Ceviche is a traditional Peruvian dish, widely consumed all around the country and it is considered as a national heritage; its origins go as far Pre-Columbian times.

Fish for ceviche should be preferably caught using hooks, rather than fishing nets, in order to keep the fish meat without damages.

Lima restaurants specialized in this dish have been full of customers since yesterday, taking advantage of the long weekend that many Peruvian workers have been enjoying these days.
