Salmon Ceviche with Fennel Salad

Serves 2 


For the ceviche
250g salmon fillet, skinned
2 tbsp rock salt
1 tbsp red chillies, finely diced
75ml pink grapefruit juice
1 tbsp lime zest
150ml lime juice (about 5 limes)
20g caster sugar
30 coriander leaves, finely chopped

For the salad
1 fennel bulb, finely sliced (using a mandolin if possible)
110g rocket leaves


For the ceviche, lightly sprinkle the salmon fillet with rock salt. Transfer to the fridge and leave for 20 minutes.

Remove the salmon from the fridge, carefully wash off all the salt and pat it dry.

In a small bowl, mix the chillies, grapefruit juice, lime zest and juice together and add the sugar. Add the coriander at the last minute and toss to combine.

Slice the salmon at an angle – each piece needs to be about 2-3mm thick.

Lay four slices evenly in a straight line onto each serving plate.

Spoon all but two tablespoons of the ceviche dressing over the salmon. Set aside for about 30 minutes.

For the salad, soak the sliced fennel in iced water for 2-3 minutes, before removing and draining. Mix with the salad leaves and the reserved two tablespoons of the ceviche dressing.

Place the fennel salad on top of the salmon and serve.
