A few peruvian recipes...

My favourite Peruvian dish is without a doubt Lomo Saltado. This hits the spot every time. It is kind of a beef stew with chips in it served with rice.

Ingredients:
Beef cut into strips
Oninon sliced into strips
Tomatoes cut into eighths.
Potatoes cut into chips and fried in hot oil
Yellow chili pepper sliced into thin strips
Chopped parsley
Balsamic vinegar
Soy sauce
Oil
Lemon juice
Salt
Pepper

Method:
1. Fry the strips of beef.
2. Add the onion and tomatoes for 2 minutes.
3. Add the rest of the ingredients.
4. Serve with rice.

Another classic from Peru is Ceviche. This is a delicious lunchtime snack made from raw fish marinated in lemon juice.

Ingredients:
Sea bass cut into chunks
Lemons (lots)
Onions
Chili
Garlic
Pepper
Salt
Coriander
Lettuce
Sweet potoato
Corn on the cob

Method:
1. Put fish in a bowl with crushed garlic and salt. Add lemon juice, finely sliced chili, pepper and chopped coriander. Leave for 10 minutes.
2. Slice oninons over the fish.
3. Serve with cooked corn, sweet potato and lettuce.

Many meals in Peru are served with a simple onion salad. Just sliced up with a herb (parsley or coriander) or some lettuce and then drenched in lime juice. I quite like it.

Also, a good snack often found sold on the street is Papa Rellena. This is mashed potato with some mince mixture, and olive and a bit of egg inside. Then fried.

Another street snack is Anticuchos. These are kebabs of beef hearts. When you ask for one you get a roast potato on the end of the skewer.
