National Ceviche Day | Besa Grill’s Ceviche – The Foodie Patootie

National Ceviche Day | Besa Grill’s Ceviche

My favorite ceviche, hands down, can be found at Besa Grill. They are one of my favorite restaurants as well, as I love interacting with all of the employees at the restaurant as well. If I lived across the street from Besa Grill, I would be in real trouble – all of my money would go there and I wouldn’t be able to stop eating.

Well, as soon as I saw National Ceviche Day on the list, I knew I would be asking the Besa Grill owner and GM if I could share the recipe, and here we are. I served the ceviche in an avocado half and eliminated the shrimp and scallops from the original recipe (below) because my husband is allergic. But, yep, tastes almost just like the original. It’s like one of those things where no matter what it is, you can’t get it exactly the same as the original. That’s okay here because it still turned out damn good.
