Asian-Style Ceviche with Salmon and Nectarines
with asian sesame asparagus saute

Active: 30 min Total: 1 hr

Ceviche is such a great warm-weather dish, because it requires no cooking. Instead of using heat to cook fish, we use acid - lime juice in this case - to impart lots of flavor to your final product. Scoop up with tortilla chips!

I was kind of disappointed in this. I love ceviche, and salmon, and easy summer meals. But somehow, the flavors didn't come together as well as I thought they would. It wasn't bad, but I don't see making it again. Plus yet another meal with ridiculously small servings. I don't really consider 3 stalks of asparagus to be any sort of adequate side.

So fresh and flavorful. If you're planning leftovers, don't mix the fruit and veggies into the fish until you're ready to eat.

Delicious! We opted to cook our salmon first (just because the idea of a ceviche "un"cookedness gives me hibbee-geebees), but it still turned out awesome!! Will definitely make again.
