    Hey everyone,

    I could really use yalls help. I cant remember this term. Its when you start cooking with heat but finish it with acid. I know it is not ceviche because ceviche means to cook soley with acid if I am not mistaken. Anyway I could really use everyone's help. Thank you in advance!!!!!

    Naw, ceviche isn't "cooked", citrus acid turns proteins opaque, but no heat is involved, so by definition it is not cooked. Don't know what the culinary term is for the tchnique you asked is though.

    Can you give us an example of a food that is cooked this way? The only thing that sounds remotely close is deglazing.
