St. Mary's, San Antonio, Tx NOTE: Ceviche, or Seviche, comes originally from Polynesia and has undergone changes that make it a Mexican dish. Mexicans perfer to use fat fish as mackerel or pompano for ceviche. Limes are preferred, although lemons may be used, since both contain the citric acid that "cooks" the fish.
