Recipe: Salmon Ceviche with LINGHAM’s Ginger Chili Sauce

I am back with more recipes using my favorite LINGHAM’s Chili Sauce! This round, it’s something really easy and doesn’t require one to fire up the stove or turn on the oven.

I can’t recall when I had my first taste of ceviche but I had always enjoyed the dish. Ceviche, said to originate from Latin America, is a dish made from fresh raw fish cured in citrus juice. Add on some other ingredients and it’s ready to be served with tortilla chips, crispy potato or plantain chips, crackers or anything crispy.

This round, I decided to make a Salmon Ceviche with LINGHAM’s Ginger Chili Sauce. The recipe is really easy and only requires a few minutes to cure and mix everything together before serving it right away. Great for parties, potlucks or any occasion, I make ceviche all the time for my family. I like the pungency of the gingery note in the LINGHAM’s Ginger Chili Sauce to add some zing to the Salmon Ceviche.

Basically, one just needs to do a little preparation of the ingredients in advance and keep it all nicely chilled till ready to serve. Just make sure the fish is fresh and kept chilled all the time in the fridge since we are going to eat this with just a light curing. Curing any fish with citrus juice only takes 10 minutes or less, depending on the cut size. When the curing is done, just mix in all the other ingredients and it is ready to serve.

I like the addition of LINGHAM’s Ginger Chili Sauce as it gives the ceviche a light sweet note to balance the citrus tang as well as a subtle heat of chili and ginger. You can even try the recipe with other LINGHAM’s Chili Sauce and it works out just as well if you don’t like ginger. Be sure to have enough tortilla chips because the Salmon Ceviche is very addictive!
