Nice. For a diff twist: I lived on Yucatan coast/ Belize for 24 yrs and ceviche was 'the thing'. We found that caye limes made the best lime flavor and after cooking the fish in the juice and dumping it, we would squeeze some more lime juice on the mix. We also also used peeled cuke pieces and little onion. I would say my favorite was to add a little bit of olive oil and some sliced up martini olives. Lost of ways to make it that taste nice and fresh! I will have to try the clamatto.
