Sending out an SOS for Ciudad's Peruvian ceviche

December 14, 2009 |  1:20 pm

Sized Is it any wonder that Culinary SOS is one of our most popular features? You ask for a recipe, and we go get it. And by "we" I mean Times Test Kitchen Manager Noelle Carter, who adapts the recipes for the home cook. We can't answer every request -- some chefs and restaurants aren't willing to share their recipes. Luckily, many chefs are flattered by the request and are happy to help out. (And Noelle is pretty persuasive.)

Here's our most recent request:

Dear SOS: I have been enjoying the Peruvian ceviche at Ciudad in downtown Los Angeles for quite some time now. Do you think that the restaurant would share the recipe? --Leticia Prado, Pasadena

Leticia, Ciudad was happy to share its recipe, and here it is.

If you have a recipe request, contact Noelle at noelle.carter@latimes.com, and include your name, address and daytime phone number.

In the meantime, here's a look at 48 recipes for your favorite restaurant meals. And keep checking back -- Noelle is always adding more.

Bon Appetit!
