You probably won’t believe it, but this delicious ceviche recipe takes only 15 minutes to throw together.

Chef’s note: Because fish is very perishable, do not store leftover for more than 1-2 days after it’s prepared. Also, make sure to be mindful of cross-contamination between the raw salmon and other fresh ingredients you may be using in your kitchen for other dishes.

Prep time

15 min.

  • 1 lb salmon, skin removed, cut into ½" pieces
  • 1 cup diced seeded English cucumber
  • 1 cup diced radish
  • 1 cup chopped scallions
  • 1 serrano chili, seeded and minced (add seeds based on desired level of spiciness)
  • ¼ cup lime juice
  • ½ cup lemon juice
  • ¼ cup unseasoned rice vinegar
  • 1 tsp freshly grated ginger
  • 1 tsp Kosher salt
  • 1 cup chopped cilantro

In a large glass bowl, combine the salmon, cucumber, radish, scallions, and chili pepper.

In a measuring cup or small mixing bowl, whisk together the lime juice, lemon juice, rice vinegar, ginger, and salt. Pour over fish mixture, and toss well, making sure all the fish is covered with the juices.

Cover with plastic wrap, and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes, tossing occasionally. Mix in the cilantro right before serving, and serve chilled.
