Delicately cooked with the acid from fresh lime juice, my ceviche recipe has a variety of fresh veggies for a light, cool and refreshing meal perfect as a summer dinner or as a light appetizer for a group. My Salmon Mango Ceviche recipe is a cross between a composed salad and a traditional ceviche. Mango, cucumbers, avocados, and tomatoes make a delicious base for the ceviche and will have you making this recipe again and again.
Ingredients in Salmon Mango Ceviche
- Salmon: For food safety reasons, be sure to use ‘previously frozen’ salmon. Extreme cold will kill the bacteria and parasites that some fish can carry.
- Lime Juice: The acid in the citrus cures the meat and adds amazing flavor to the ceviche.
- Herbs and Greens: I use cilantro in the ceviche and serve the dish on a bed of salad greens.
- Fruits and Veggies: Mangos, cucumbers, tomatoes, avocados, red onions, and jalapenos. This ceviche has great flavors and texture.
- Seasonings: Only salt and pepper are needed to make this delicious recipe.

Is Ceviche Safe to Eat?
NOTES ON RAW FISH AND FOOD SAFETY:
*Always use ‘sushi-grade salmon’ or fish that has been previously frozen when making ceviche. Eating raw fish has its risks and although cooking with lime juice changes the texture, it doesn’t kill all of the bacteria or parasites that fish can carry. The only thing that kills the bacteria and parasites is temperature, either extreme cold or heat. So, for your safety, only use fish that you have purchased from a reputable vendor. I’m not a doctor or scientist, so if you have doubts about food safety, skip this recipe, there are plenty of other ways to eat salmon!
