    Sea bass ceviche at Ceviche

    £6.75, Ceviche, 17 Frith Street, W1D 4RF

    Ceviche, the Latin American dish of seafood marinated in citrus juice, has become one of the food trends of 2012, and this restaurant of the same name is a good place to try it. The best version is the sea bass, which is made with a distinctive yellow chilli, called aji amarillo, and red onion. This is bathed in leche de tigre (‘tiger’s milk’), the name given to the lime juice marinade (which can be drunk after the ceviche is eaten). The fish is tasty and firm, the lime juice mixture thick, the chilli piquant, the onion gives crunch. We can see it catching on.
