Put the water into a pan and let it boil.

Once it´s boiling, let the fish cook for 3 min

Shred the fillets with a fork as shown in the picture.

To cool off the fish place the shredded fish in the freezer for 10 min. Or before shredding rinse the fillets with cold water.

Step 4: Chop and Mix

Because we used a lot of lime, leftovers would get sour, to avoid waste, eat it all.

If you like spicy/hot food you can add chopped jalapeño or serrano peppers.

Eat the salad with nachos or crackers.

It's not traditional ceviche, but it might be good?

Ceviche is not cooked like that, ceviche is raw fish cooked in the acidity of the lemon juice.

No ketchup in your ceviche! Just don't. Ever.
