    this looks great, I am about to try ceviche for the first time....is fresca the drink, or a type of cheese?
    also I have read conflicting opinions on the cook time in the citrus about how long do you do, and then do you drain excess juice before mixing with other ingredients?
    Make the forum great again.....consolidate general fishing with for sale or business but keep reports separate!

    This is about how I do mine. Never tried the Fresca drink though?

    I use jalapeño instead of the green pepper
    and add to the above:
    1 Cucumber cubed
    1 Avocado cubed (the best part!)

    I also like to use maybe 4 limes, 1 lemon, and 1 small Orange. The mix of citrus is really good I think, some of the local ceviche places in Miami do this..
