Ceviche is a Latin method of “cooking” seafood by letting it marinate in acidic juices. It’s important that you use only sushi grade salmon for this preparation method. Using lettuce leaves for the wraps and stuffing them with a lively salsa assures this dish is exceptionally fresh tasting.
1/3 cup (80 mL) fresh lime juice
1/3 cup (80 mL) fresh lemon juice
1/3 cup (80 mL) orange juice
1 lb (450 g) fresh skinless salmon, cut into 1/2 in (1.25 cm) pieces
1 1/2 cups (350 mL) cherry tomatoes, quartered
1 avocado, diced
1 cup (250 mL) cubed pineapple
2 green onions, thinly sliced
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced
1/3 cup (80 mL) fresh basil, chopped
1/4 cup (60 mL) dried coconut flakes (optional)
Zest of 1 lime
Juice of 1/2 lime
1/4 tsp (1 mL) sea salt
12 large lettuce leaves, such as romaine or Boston
Stir together lime juice, lemon juice, and orange juice in a flat container. Add salmon and marinate in refrigerator, flipping pieces at least once, for a minimum of 4 hours or up to 8 hours. Remove salmon from liquid and discard citrus juices.
For salsa, in large bowl, toss together tomatoes, avocado, pineapple, green onion, jalapeno, basil, coconut (if using), lime zest, lime juice, and salt.
Divide salmon among lettuce leaves and top with salsa before folding into wraps.
