While you're frying up some eggs and bacon, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday.
Catch it if you can - June 28 is el Día Nacional del Cebiche, or National Ceviche Day!
Peru's iconic dish is made by marinating ultra-fresh, firm fish in citrus juice, and zesting that up with a kiss of aji or chiles. In the gallery above, CNN's Larry Lazo visits chef Eddy Acansi at Las Canteras in Washington D.C. to see firsthand what goes into making the perfect ceviche.
On his recent Parts Unknown visit to Peru, Anthony Bourdain visited ceviche master Javier Wong at his restaurant Chez Wong (located, fittingly, in his home) to glean his expertise. The best ceviche, he finds, "Only needs the best cut, a little citrus and no heat."
And a Pisco Sour sure doesn't hurt, either.
