General Discussion 4

Normally I can't stand any of the numerous discussions on the authenticity of a particular dish. However I now have an "authenticity" question of my own. Yesterday my Mexican neighbor offered me some ceviche which she had just made. I diplomatically rejected her offer not being a fan of uncooked fish. But she said that wasn't a problem because in her ceviche the fish is first cooked in water then ground and finished like a normal ceviche.
So was it ceviche or something else? All my recipe references say ceviche is fish "cooked" in lime juice. Have you seen recipes for a cooked fish ceviche?
