Tiradito of Lima

Tiradito is a Peruvian dish of raw fish, cut in the shape of sashimi, and of aspect similar to crudo, and carpaccio, in a spicy sauce.[1][2] It reflects the influence of Japanese immigrants on Peruvian cookery.[3] Tiradito differs from ceviche in two ways: tiradito is sliced, while ceviche is cubed;[4] and tiradito is sauced immediately before service, hence raw, while ceviche is marinated beforehand, hence "cooked".[5] Some authors also state that tiradito does not contain onions,[6] but this is not universal.

Common garnishes include sweet potato and boiled corn. Stylized variants may include such ingredients as scallops, and a small amount of searing.
