One of my favorite dishes is Ceviche (apparently is also spelled cebiche). Traditionally we use Corvina, but is impossible to find it here in the Bay Area (some people say that it is chilean sea bass, but I don't agree). So I decided to experiemnt with different fishes to replace it. Here I'll post my opinioins about them.
Somewhere I read this ciuld be a good suhstitute. I went to a local market and the red snapper fillets looked kind of similar to the corvina, akbeit smaller. A good feature is the price: it was one of the cheapest fishes, so why not give it a try.
RESULT: I was pleasently surprised. Very similar texture and flavor. After a few hours of maseration, the cebiche was very good. I'll keep trying other fishes, but is nice to have a fold back plan already.
