Fish Strips (or Tiritas de Pescado in Spanish) are very similar to ceviche but with fewer ingredients and require a shorter preparation time. Here's the recipe for how to prepare fish strips, just like on the Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo beaches. It is an easy recipe that anyone can prepare at home, the taste is spectacular, do not forget to try them.
