Pineapple and salmon ceviche

With temperatures hovering around 95F, who wants to cook?

Here is my feeling on salmon: Either get wild salmon or you might as well eat chicken. So I don’t buy salmon often, but the store had a sign ” Copper River wild Salmon”, which proved irresistible. I mean did you check the vibrant orange-red of this fish? Its flesh really felt like it had been alive and thriving not too long ago and for the first time, as I was deboning it and skinning it, I felt like a true carnivore.

INGREDIENTS: 8 servings (as an appetizer)

  • 1 pound of salmon (preferably wild)
  • 8 ounces of fresh pineapple
  • 2 oranges
  • 2 limes
  • 2 lemons
  • 1/3 cup of honey
  • 1/4 cup of minced basil
  • salt, pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 cup of pomegranate seeds (optional)


  1. Juice the lemons, limes and oranges. Transfer to a large bowl.
  2. Cut the fresh pineapple into small and thin slices, and transfer into the large bowl. Dice the salmon and transfer into the large bowl. Salt and pepper to taste. cover and let it sit in the fridge for about one hour.
  3. Seed a small pomegranate, mince a handful of basil and add to the ceviche. Mix to combine and serve.

    I envy you that wonderful wild salmon. I bet the Martin Codax went well with it. Just the kind of food and drink for these temperatures.

    It is ironic that I live in Scotland near a famous salmon river, but wild salmon is generally unobtainable. We can’t even get organic farmed in this area.I totally agree with your salmon taste comclusion.

    Very interesting combo! I have never tried salmon with pineapples. I love each of them on their own- but never thought to try them together! YUM!

    Oh my, this is the food of gods…I feel for you: it is real hot here too, so I also just posted one of those refreshing recipes.

    With that temperature, I think I would love to live in the fridge! This looks cool, fresh and so appetizing!

    Pineapple and basil make a perfect pairing! Add wild salmon for ceviche and it’s bliss.

    That salmon definitely looks super fresh and delicious! Quality ingredients make all the difference.

    I have been craving ceviche for the past couple of days now. Like you said, it must be the warmer weather. This one looks beautiful and delicious. Salmon and pineapple is one of my favorite flavor combinations!

    You and I have the same salmon motto! This ceviche sounds so delicious and perfect for those super hot days when no one wants to cook!

    Nice combinations for salmon, and I especially the orange and lemon. This can be a good appetizer in hot weather. Thank you!

    Hmmm ceviche! And adding pineapple would be a great twist. Delicious!

    Never made ceviche before but it looks delicious. Unfortunately we don’t get wild salmon here in Greece.

    It’s been far from warm here and unseasonably cool but your ceviche looks so inviting, I’d love to try it when the weather warms up a bit.

    This looks quite tasty but alas, I’m allergic to pineapple. Perhaps I could make it and have the fruit “on the side?”

    Gosh do you have astounding photos and placement-skills. The food looks absolutely wonderful!

    Am a big ceviche fan, but alas, I have never made it. I even bought a whole book on it! That is one wild, psychedelic salmon! Love the citrusy colors.

  26. Posted May 27, 2011 at 12:10 pm | Permalink

    This sounds like such a tasty combination of flavours! Beautiful colours too!

    Waw, this looks amazing!
