Peruvian-Japanese Scallop Ceviche

Ceviche has existed in Peru since the Incas. However, many upper class Peruvians preferred meat to fish until the Japanese immigrants of the 20th century began opening seafood centered restaurants that inspired a resurgence love of fish and consequently the development of the ceviche we know today. Here, Emeril pays homage to these traditions with a Japanese flavored ceviche.
