When you look at Fiesta Limena’s dinner menu, you will notice that a large part of it is dedicated to seafood, or mariscos as we say in Spanish. You may wonder why there is such a vast amount of Peruvian seafood specialties, and the answer is that Peru is home to more species of fish than any other country in the world – over 2,000! This includes both freshwater and saltwater fish. Of course Ceviche, made with shrimp, sea bass, and other saltwater fish originated on the coast. However, many people are unaware that there are also an abundance of trout farms in Peru, along with many other freshwater species. In fact, the Peruvian trout exporting business has grown significantly in the last few years as international demand has increased. The climate and water bodies in Peru make it an ideal place for trout farming, and Peruvians use the fish in many dishes, such as Trucha Rellena, or stuffed trout. So when you’re in the mood for fish and looking for a Norwalk seafood restaurant, try Fiesta Limena.
