Seviche has over the past decade or longer become very much a part of America’s culinary culture. It is also sometimes spelled ceviche, and the name derives from the Spanish word cebollo, which means onions. I believe chopped onion was essential to the original preparation. There are countless versions of this fish-marinated-in-lime-juice preparation. This is the one that I prefer.
