Flounder Tiradito: Peruvian Ceviche with Sweet Potatoes

Serves: 2 • Time: 30 minutes, plus 1 hour cooling
One can hardly talk about Peruvian cuisine without mentioning ceviche, a raw fish preparation cured in citrus juice or vinegar. Don’t skimp on the salt! It’s essential to deepening the flavor of the dish.

  • ¼ cup fish stock
  • ¼ small onion
