Only difference here in Guatemala is that we make it with a bit of diced tomato, onion, jalapeno, naranja agria (sour orange), hierbabuena (mint, I believe) and cilantro.
The best ceviche in my opinion is the one made with a mollusk called Casco de Burro (Donkey Hoof). It has a pitch black liqueur and tastes like heaven. I wish I knew what you would call it in english. I just know the scientific name: Grandiarca grandis.

Anyway- I passed out after starting to make it last night and it ended up marinating in lime and orange juice all night. I normally do good fresh fish like 3-4 hours.
I just did a generic mix- tomatos, white onion, cilantro, a few Caribbean reds all diced up. I drain the fish out of the marinating mix and add new fresh lime and orange juice mix.
Fish salsa! Good with chips and avocados.

I'm guessing that marinating it all night in all that citrus should've cooked the fish, correct?
Yep, as THP said. Many ways to make it- not a good food for the heartburn prone though.

[Edit: I've never had it with shark, pompano, skate, cobia, mackerel, or permit... but I'd bet they'd all work as well. On a side note, for the best civiche experience, you really want to have the freshest fish you can find.]
I made a ceviche for a seafood throwdown back in August 2010, and it was fantastic.
1/2 # yellowtail snapper cut into 1/2" cubes
1/2 red onion chopped fine
1 green onion
2 plum tomatoes
1/2 cucumber [edit: 1/2" cubes]
4 limes juiced
2 lemons juiced
1/2 cup orange juice
2 serranos sliced thin w/ seeds
1/2 tsp kosher salt
Mix and let marinate for 1 hour. Mix occasionally.
~ a hand full of chopped cilantro (add and mix directly prior to serving)
To me cilantro is almost a must have ingredient in ceviche, but that's just my taste. Culantro, which is very similar, can also be used.

Mackerel will probably be "too fishy" for most people's taste. It's MUCH better smoked, IMO.

It's not "too fishy" for me, just trying to imagine the rest of the flavor profile. I'd have to refer to TB....
