Ecuador’s seafood deserves special praise. The traditional cuisine of the coast uses the best that the ocean has to offer, always fresh and abundant. The country’s coastal food incorporates fish, coconut, rice, peanuts, lime, and plantains, making it an exotic contrast of flavors, colors, and textures. Perhaps the most popular seafood dish in Ecuador is the traditional ceviche, a shrimp cocktail served with a mix of orange or lime juice, with onion slivers, and chopped tomatoes along with salted banana chips and popcorn! The shrimp is marinated in the citrus juice. Ceviche is usually eaten as a midday snack, but it can also be served for lunch or even dinner. Don’t forget the beer.
