What is ceviche?
This Latin American dish is prepared by “cooking” raw ﬁsh* in citrus juice. The acid in the juice alters the protein in ﬁsh, in a process similar to cooking. This dish is prepared without heat, so always use the freshest ﬁsh possible.
(*Raw ﬁsh may pose a risk to young children, pregnant women, elderly people or anyone with a compromised immune system.)

Pair it with: An off-dry German white.
Due to this dish’s acidity and heat, matching a wine to it can be a bit tricky. But this crisp German riesling, with just a touch of sweetness and aromatics of Granny Smith apples and limes, complements it perfectly.
Top pick: Carl Reh Riesling Kabinett, Germany, $12.
