Don't worry about using frozen fish for this recipe. The citrusy lime juice will mask the frozen fish flavor.
This is tilapia. However, you can also use codgrouperhaddock, or sea bass. Any white fish will do.
For those of you who do not want to use raw onions, you can also use pickled onions.
For a less spicy ceviche, you can use pickled jalapenos
