An inventive take on a traditional Latin preparation of fish cooked by the acid of a citrus marinade, this sweet ceviche features mango, ginger, vanilla and citrus. Chef Flores recommends spooning it over chocolate cake or ice cream.

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 vanilla bean, halved lengthwise, seeds scraped out and reserved
  • Peel of 1 lemon, cut into strips
  • 1 tablespoon sliced fresh ginger
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 3 large, firm mangoes


  1. In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, bring 2 cups water, sugar, vanilla bean (and seeds), lemon peel, and ginger to a boil, stirring until the sugar is dissolved.
  2. Simmer, undisturbed, for 2 minutes. Let cool to room temperature. Add lemon juice and pour syrup through a fine sieve into a clean bowl.
  3. Peel mangoes, slice them very thinly or into long strips, and add them to the infused sugar syrup. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or up to 4 days.
