Remarks

For a real Peruvian touch, add a finely chopped fresh red chilli at stage 3, and use sweet potatoes instead of normal ones.

For even more flavour, zest one of the limes and add this to the juice for curing.

You can drizzle a little herb olive oil onto the ceviche just before serving.

Do feel free to adjust the amount of ginger (more or less) and garlic to suit your own tastes.
