More Information about Las Ventanas al Paraiso
Las Ventanas has one of the finest culinary in Los Cabos, I’ve had the opportunity to taste first hand many times not only when I’m there shooting photographs at destination weddings but as a guest and the service is unsurpassable.
the Cebiche/ceviche is a Peruvian signature entree by tradition. Is our trade mark. By no means is a Mexican dish. Mexico prepares a sweeter ceviche that has no point to compare to the original Peruvian. FYI
Nowhere in this recipe does does the chef call this a Mexican recipe; in fact, he
calls this a “Tiradito” which is the Peruvian name. Ceviche is the Mexican
version that usually includes fresh tomato. An article on Peruvian Tiradito
which requires fresh lime juice intrigued me and I often bring key limes to
a Japanese sushi bar and use the juice on sliced scallops with a drop of soy
sauce (but no wasabi).
