Meet the food that brings us to lust
With this steaming hot weather in the middle of March, I've got Dr Seuss on the brain. Now few foods in our home are more coveted than salmon. And therefore seeing a slab of Atlantic salmon in the grocery cart is looked at with much glee and anticipation - this applies to the kids as well. And since we are all nutters over sushi, to actually cook the salmon is in hubby's words - blasphemy!
And therefore ceviche is generally the treatment of choice. The joke of the matter is that I hardly ever fix traditional ceviche - seafood 'chemically cooked' in lemon juice. Instead I am always playing around and dabbling with a variety of flavors & sauces to create a sort of reinvented 'ceviche'. Ceviche purists, I apologize.
Do you remember a while back when we made that lovely Asian salmon ceviche salad? Same ingredient, different treatment.
This one I must say goes down smooth - spicy salmon with creamy cucumber & radish guacamole is simply heavenly. The speed at which my kids shovel down these lovelies should give even those wary of raw seafood eating, a boost!
