A perfect appetizer dish to share with friends during Summer, fresh and different: Tiradito
Peruvian food is very popular in Chile, and rightly so, as it is delicious. Peru and Chile enjoy an abundance of seafood generously provided by the Pacific Ocean. With my family in the summer, while on vacation on the beach, we didn’t eat any beef. Fresh fish was king.
Tiraditos are becoming popular. They are a close relative to sashimi but with Latin flavors.
Remember that raw fish must be consumed safely to avoid the risk of anisakiasis. You must use previously frozen fish. This kills the parasite in question. In supermarkets, ask for raw fish and sushi grade.
What is the difference between Ceviche and Tiradito?
Both are raw fish dishes, but on the tiradito, the fish is thinly sliced, and on the ceviche, the fish is cubbed. Also, on the tiradito, the sauce is added just before serving. On the ceviche, the fish is marinated for at least a couple of hours before serving.
What is Nikkei food?
Nikkei food is a cuisine derivated from the intermingling of Peruvian traditions and indigenous foods and the Japanese immigrants that arrived in Peru at the end of the 1800s.Print
