Never had Bluegill ceviche. I had Redfish ceviche and it was GREAT! thumb




Side Note: Would be interesting if anyone has had it or has made it. Let us know how it was! food

Any good white fleshed fish will be good. Crappie would no doubt be great.

i have always heard NOT to eat freshwater fish raw.

I googled it and this was an excerpt from an article I found.

"Cutting to the focus of this article, here’s a disclaimer: This is about eating raw saltwater finfish and does not include shellfish. And my first piece of unconditional advice: DO NOT EAT RAW FRESHWATER FISH. There are many known deleterious bacteria and parasites that live in fresh water and in the flesh of the denizens that swim therein."

It isn't that freshwater fish have more parasites than salt water fish, it's that the freshwater parasites are more adapted to live on in the human body after eating them. So it's generally considered a bad idea.

But is it "raw", doesn't the citric acid "cook" the flesh?

I doubt the fresh water bacteria would survive the acid bath. But I don't know. Lots of folks have eaten raw fresh water fish and survived.

CORRECT! The lime juice "cooks" the fish.

I have had this, made with crappie. I could have just chewed on a lime half and would have never been able to tell the difference. barf The other two guys that were there, thought it was GREAT!! loco

I agree with ^^^. Just stick to whole pan fried bluegill, the best way to eat them. smile

I prefer the fish to be cubed into chunks a little bit thicker, so the bluegill fillets aren't exactly ideal in my book. I've eaten ceviche made from fresh caught crappie, catfish, bluegill, stripped bass. I know it's anectodal evidence, but I've never gotten sick. In the US people quite commonly use tilapia or those imported "basa" fillets, but it's usually frozen first. I would think the freezing kills the parasites and bacteria. What I'm not sure about is if the acid bath would necessarily kill those same bacteria from your fresh catch.

Commercial freezers get colder than what we can get at home. Time frozen probably helps too. The acid probably does the job for bacteria, but it's the higher organisms like worms that can survive it.
