This mango ceviche is prepared with fresh mangoes, onions, lime, orange juice, and habanero and / or fresno peppers, coriander and salt. I’ve been making this ceviche for 10 years and over time I have gradually refined this recipe. I think it works very well now.
One of the main improvements of this mango ceviche recipe is the addition of peppers and the removal of added sugar, due to the presence of fresh orange juice. This gives a ceviche (which is a salad in sauce, or a cold soup according to the definition) which is vegan, without animal product. For the best service, it is best to chill it 30 minutes once prepared.
Prepare onions and mango
Put the finely chopped onions in salted water, let macerate for 10 minutes, rinse and drain.
Meanwhile, peel and cut the mangoes. Set aside a few pieces (about 1/4 mango) to mix in the sauce.
Place the mangoes in pieces, the red onions, a little coriander (~ half) and a pinch of salt in a large bowl. Add the juice of 2-3 limes, mix and let sit.
Make the orange juice.
Mixing and mango ceviche final steps
In a blender, add the rest of the lime juice, the orange juice, the mango chunks you have set aside, the peppers, and the oil. Mix to obtain a smooth and homogeneous sauce. If there are pieces left after going through the blender, one option is to pass the sauce through a colander.

You can serve this fruit ceviche with patacones, which are fried plantains, or chifles, plantain chips. Otherwise, more classic chips will do the trick too.
