How to prepare
This sea bass ceviche with authentic Peruvian tiger’s milk is easy to make and delicious as a starter!
1 Cut the fish as finely as you can diagonally across the grain into very thin slices. Arrange the fish on a big plate and set aside.
2 Meanwhile, grate the mango half roughly and add the gratings to a bowl.
3 For the tiger's milk, mix the root ginger, garlic, coriander and the lime juice in a bowl. Stir and leave to infuse for 5 minutes. Strain the mixture through a sieve into another bowl. Add 1/2 teaspoon of salt and 1 tablespoon of Amarillo chili paste (or regular chili paste) and mix well.
4 Mix the sea bass with the tiger's milk and leave to 'cook' for 2-3 minutes. Arrange the fish on 4 plates, add the mango and garnish with the finely sliced chilli and basil leaves.
