Bottom line, pico de gallo has the same ingredients as salsa only it is always raw. In Mexico it might also be called salsa fresca (fresh salsa), salsa cruda (raw salsa), and salsa huevona (lazy salsa). The tomatoes make or break this recipe… only fragrant, ripe tomatoes will do!
Ceviche is raw seafood or fish “cooked” by lemon or lime juice. The acid in the citrus juice denatures the proteins in the fish, causing it to become opaque and producing a firm texture. Now don’t wrinkle your nose… it’s invigoratingly delicious as long as you use the freshest of ingredients!
