Savoury Recipe - Trout Ceviche with Zucchini and Tiger Leche

Tired of hot weather, hot meals, noisy hoods and steamy kitchens? Here's a fresh recipe bursting with sunshine, where the fish is "cooked" cold, in an acid marinade and a sauce called "tiger's milk" ("lait du tigre").leche de tigre")originally from South America.

Many types of fish lend themselves perfectly to ceviche, provided they are very fresh. If in doubt, and if it hasn't been frozen before, it's advisable to freeze it for 24 hours at -18°C to destroy any parasites present and avoid poisoning.
