Serves 4


1 lb fresh whitefish, cut into this strips
1 medium red onion, halved and sliced thin
1 clove garlic, chopped fine
1 hot pepper, jalapeño or other, deseeded and chopped fine
1 teaspoon or pinch of cayenne pepper
Juice of 3 lemons
Juice of 2 limes or sour oranges
¼ cup fresh cilantro, chopped fine
¼ cup fresh parsley, chopped fine


Mix all ingredients together and let marinate in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours, making sure all the fish is covered in juices. Serve on a bed of butter leaf lettuce with a cold sweet potato round and a handful of Cancha.


This popular snack in Peru is made with a special type of large-kernel corn called maiz chilpe. The dried kernels are tossed with oil and toasted in a skillet until they are brown and puffed and then seasoned with salt.
*Maiz Chilpe can be found at specialty Latin Stores or at times in farmers markets in Latin communities, the variety is extremely rare in the USA.
