Ceviche: Southeast Asian Inspired Ceviche Recipe Video

I love Ceviche! What can I say I just LOVE Ceviche! It comes in so many different ways from so many different countries that you can never get bored with it. This variety of Ceviche I am making here is with a fish called Swai which comes from Southeast Asia and the spices and herbs to make this are from Southeast Asia as well. So instead of making this dish the way most people are accustomed to which is the Mexican way of the Southwest I am going the other direction and making this Southeast Asian inspired Ceviche. I hope you enjoy it!
