Try this out-of-the-ordinary ceviche twist—salmon with mango and jalapeños. The salmon never sees heat but rather is "cooked" in acidic juices. In this instance, it's a delicious blend of fresh orange, lemon, and lime juices. Mixed with soy sauce and mirin, a Japanese rice wine, it has an Asian twist that pairs perfectly with the fresh salmon. Red onion adds crunch, mango adds sweetness, and jalapeños add heat. Cilantro adds a nice touch of freshness.

This ceviche has a wonderful flavor and is a perfect appetizer served with tortilla or plantain chips for scooping. Serve it at your next gathering for a refreshing and delicious snack, or include it as part of a summertime lunch or dinner. Pair ceviche with a crisp, fruity white wine like sauvignon blanc or a light beer.

Ingredients

  • 4 (6-ounce) skinless salmon fillets, cut into small cubes

  • 1 cup freshly squeezed orange juice, from about 2 large oranges

  • 1/2 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice, from about 3 large lemons

  • 1/2 cup soy sauce

  • 1/2 cup mirin

  • 1 medium red onion, thinly sliced

  • 1 medium mango, peeled and diced

  • 2 to 3 small jalapeños, finely diced, seeded for less heat

  3. Cover and refrigerate for at least 20 minutes or up to 1 hour. Don't leave the salmon in the marinade for too long or the fish will become mushy.

Tips

  • Even though the salmon is "cooked" with the citrus juice, because no heat is applied, food-borne illness is still a concern. Use the freshest, best quality fish you can find for ceviche, and prepare and eat it as soon as possible. This will decrease your risk of contamination and produce the most delicious results.
  • To make the sliced onion a little less intense, soak in cool water for about 30 minutes. Drain well and dry before adding to the ceviche.

Recipe Variations

  • Add diced avocado for a creamy texture and green color.
  • If you don't like cilantro, swap the herb for fresh chives.
