Re: NYC: Thurs., 2/27 6:45 PM Kochi - Theme: Wines to match 9 course tasting

Leche de tigre, or tiger's milk, is the Peruvian term for the citrus-based marinade that cures the seafood in a ceviche. Also known as leche de pantera, this leftover fish runoff usually contains lime juice, sliced onion, chiles, salt, and pepper — along with a bit of fish juice.
