Cod ceviche with mango salsa

One of our favorite ways to enjoy fresh fish during the hot summer months is ceviche. It's a popular preparation method throughout Latin America that calls for curing—which actually cooks—the fish or seafood with citric acid in a process known as 'denaturing.' In this recipe, we use lime juice to cure the cod and for its citrusy link to our mango salsa—a classic pairing in Latin American cuisine.
