This is how they do in Peru!
Tiradito is one of many ways Peru does raw fish and it’s not at all like ceviche, arguably Peru’s national dish. The fish is sliced thin like carpaccio for tiradito, in ceviche it’s cut into chunks; ceviche is marinated in citrus juice that “cooks” the fish, tiradito is raw like sashimi (as a matter of fact, the dish has its roots in Japan) and is covered just before serving under a blanket of yellow aji pepper paste. Traditionally, it’s served with sweet potatoes and choclo – boiled, plump, Peruvian kernels of corn. It’s a delicious dish and if you’re a raw fish fan, you should definitely try it. If you’re NOT a raw fish fan, you should definitely try it as well; it might just change your mind.
