Aguachile is one of the main and most popular dishes in Mexican Seafood. Even though its recipe varies from state to state, however the concept is always the same, fish or seafood mixed with lemon juice, salt, peppers, water and fresh vegetables like cucumbers onions and more. No wonder, its name actually comes from the juxtaposition of the words agua (water) and chile (chilies).
Aguachile is a typical dish of the western coast of Mexico, and it is consumed mainly in the northwest area including the states Baja California, Sinaloa, Sonora and Nayarit. It is said that the original version includes shrimps and chiltepin chilies. However in order to make the recipe easier, we decided to make it with serrano peppers.
