“Aguachile (literally chili water) is a Mexican variation of ceviche, which is fiercer than the traditional Peruvian dish, but equally fresh and delicious! To make it, you blend up a punchy mix of lime juice, chili, and fresh herbs which has the effect of ‘curing’ the shrimp and adding vibrant green color to the dish as a whole.

  2. 6 tbsp lime juice 
  3. 1 clove garlic
