What is ceviche exactly?

Ceviche is a seafood dish made from fresh raw fish cured with lemon or lime. You can use tuna or shrimp in ceviche as well.

Use the same recipe.

This is one of our Favorite dishes, especially paired with boiled potatoes. Yum! Never get tired of this Fresh tasting dish! 

I know many people are scared of “raw fish” and but this is citrus-cured fish.

I have found the following explanation online:
The acid in the citrus denatures the proteins in the fish, causing it to become opaque and producing a firm texture.”

Well… I buy my Salmon at Costco all the time. The reason I like it, it has NO SKIN and ALWAYS FRESH. Never had an issue (fingers crossed).

But, the choice is up to you and how sensitive you are about this issue.

Salmon Ceviche

Usually, I buy 3 or more pounds of Salmon. About 2 lbs. I use to bake or broil, and the rest for – CEVICHE, of course!

I have looked at many recipes online and many use cilantro for flavoring. I’m not a fan of cilantro and some other spices, so I substitute with parsley or dill.

Again, you can change this recipe to your liking. 

You can add cucumbers, tomatoes, and peppers, if you like, to make it, even more filling and Delicious!

It is Best to eat Salmon Ceviche after it’s been marinated for at least an hour to overnight. Your fish is ready when it’s opaque.

How to make Salmon Ceviche

In a large glass bowl combine vinegar, lemon juice, olive oil, radishes, onion, and parsley. Adjust the salt and pepper to your liking.

In a separate glass bowl, add cubed Salmon. Generously season with salt, rubbing on all sides.

I prefer my Salmon salty tasting, but you can add as much or as little salt as you prefer. Always adjust to taste.

Let the salt absorb into the Salmon for a couple of minutes before adding it to a ceviche sauce. Stir to combine. Sprinkle with sesame seeds.

Cover the bowl with a plastic wrap and leave to marinate in the refrigerator for at least an hour to overnight.
