Belize Cuisine #2 Seafood Ceviche
The most ordered appetizer in Belize is Ceviche. Ceviche is known throughout Central and South America and has long been a favorite seafood dish. However, in Belize the ceviche is commonly made with shrimp or conch (when in season) marinated in lime juice with diced tomatoes, onions, cilantro, and a dash of habanero peppers, seasoned with salt to taste. The ceviche is often eaten with tortilla chips accompanied with an ice-cold Belikin beer.
