Mexican Food From The Sea: 3 Amazing Must Try Seafood Dishes

by Andy Hill

Seafood is a food rich in high quality proteins and is low-fat, making it a healthy choice that can reduce your risk of heart attack, stroke, obesity, and hypertension, among many other benefits. If you can, try out more seafood dishes. If you love Mexican food, it's time to dive into the many spices that are traditionally used by venturing away from tacos and burritos, and trying newer dishes. In particular, here are 3 amazing seafood dishes that you must try.

Fish Ceviche

If you don't want seafood for your main dish, then look for a ceviche made from fish for your appetizer, although the dish is also sometimes incorporated into entrees. A fish ceviche is mainly composed of different types of fresh fishes marinated in citrus juices and topped with different types of herbs like mustard cress and red chili. The tantalizing taste of the fish is enhanced by the citrus juices, and will really open up your appetite for the entrees to come.

Although ceviche is served in many South American countries, Mexico spices things up by accompanying the ceviche with slices of raw onions and toasted tortillas.

Parrillada Mixta del Mar

If you love grilled seafood, you cannot go wrong with ordering the parrillada mixta del mar. It's essentially a seafood grill that is served with sides such as tartar sauce or garlic butter, although many people enjoy it without any sauces on the side. Common seafood tossed onto the grill include snapper, octopus, shrimp, mussels, lobster and king crab. Every restaurant will have a different menu and a different variety of seafood. The charred flavor of the flame-grilled meat adds a different dimension to the dish that makes it ever so addicting.


Chipachole is technically a specialty dish of Veracruz, but it is still very popular all over Mexico. It is a spicy seafood soup made from either shrimp or crab meat. The flavor of the fish stock is enhanced with ancho chile and other types of herbs and spices. It is served with avocado slices, chopped onion and chopped cilantro as garnishments.

Mexican food is more than just tacos, burritos and fajitas. There are many traditional and cultural dishes that will give you an entirely different look into the flavors in Mexico. Indulge your taste buds in these new experiences. You won't regret it, and you'll get a better understanding of the Mexican culture at the same time. 

Visit a restaurant like La Cabana Mexican Restaurant to enjoy some local Mexican cuisine.
