Expert Tips

You can serve this dish with sweet potato or yucca.

The popularity of ceviche, one of Peru’s signature dishes, has spread well beyond the country’s borders for several years. Worldwide popularity has benefitted ceviche, as new creative versions emerge every day. The classic recipe contains five ingredients: fish, lime, salt, ají and onion. This time I bring you a sophisticated salmon ceviche, inspired by another dish I tried long ago. I make it with leche de tigre (tiger’s milk), using half and half milk to make it creamier. I then cover the salmon with this sauce and serve it with avocados. The result is a tasty creation worthy of any table, especially during the summer season. Buen provecho!

If you want a traditional presentation, cut the salmon in smaller chunks before mixing with tiger’s milk.

If you want a spicier version, increase the amount of ají amarillo.

Directions

  • 1 To prepare leche de tigre, mix in a blender white fish, fish broth, lime juice, ají amarillo paste, celery, garlic, ginger, onion, salt and pepper. Process in high speed.
  • 2 Pass on to a large bowl and add half & half. Cover it and put in the refrigerator.
  • 3 Meanwhile, add salt and pepper to the salmon. Cook in a saucepan over medium heat, until it changes color, about 2 minutes per side. Pass on to a chopping board and let it reach room temperature. Cut in thin pieces.
  • 4 Peel the avocado and slice in thin pieces.
  • 5 In a plate, place the salmon, alternating with the avocado. Cover that with tiger’s milk and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
  • 6 Garnish with arugula and edible flowers and serve right away.
