      What is the best season to make this recipe?

      Mediterranean Salmon Ceviche is a versatile dish that can be enjoyed year-round.

      It truly shines during the warmer months when fresh, seasonal ingredients are abundant.

      The bright flavors and refreshing ingredients of this ceviche make it an ideal choice for spring and summer gatherings, picnics, and outdoor parties.

      What are the health benefits of this dish?

      This Mediterranean Salmon Ceviche is a true powerhouse of nutrition, promoting overall well-being with every delectable bite.

      Salmon is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which are essential for heart health and brain function.

      The citrus juices provide a hefty dose of vitamin C, while the fresh herbs and vegetables contribute fiber, vitamins, and antioxidants.

      Where can I buy the required ingredients?

      To ensure the quality, I recommend buying your ingredients from local farmers’ markets or specialty grocers.

      Look for sustainably sourced salmon fillets, organic citrus fruits, and locally grown herbs and vegetables at local farmer markets.

      You can explore online retailers that specialize in premium ingredients for a great culinary experience.

      Can I substitute any of the ingredients?

      While I encourage you to follow my recipe, you can always customize it to suit your preferences and dietary needs.

      Feel free to experiment with different varieties of citrus fruits, such as lime or grapefruit, in place of oranges.

      You can also swap out the yellow pepper for red or orange bell peppers to add extra sweetness and color.

      For a milder heat, consider substituting the red chili pepper with a pinch of crushed red pepper flakes.

      Can I make this dish part of a menu?


      Mediterranean Salmon Ceviche pairs beautifully with a variety of Mediterranean-inspired dishes, creating a memorable dining experience.

      Serve it as a refreshing appetizer alongside the irresistible Mediterranean Shrimp Croquettes, or The Best Spicy Salmon Tartare, or Salmon Caviar Deviled Eggs  or a Mediterranean mezze platter that delights the senses.

      For a main course, serve this easy Foil Baked Sea Bream with Oven Baked Fries for a satisfying and nutritious meal.

      For a dessert, go with my Chocolate Raspberry Tart or Mango Pavlova.

      Which drinks pair well with this dish?

      You can complement the vibrant flavors of Mediterranean Salmon Ceviche with refreshing beverages that enhance its citrusy zest and delicate salmon.

      Crisp white wines such as Sauvignon Blanc or Albariño provide a perfect balance of acidity and fruitiness, while sparkling rosé adds a touch of elegance to any occasion.

      For a non-alcoholic option, try pairing it with a refreshing cucumber mint mocktail or citrus-infused sparkling water for a refreshing burst.

      How long can I store the leftovers?

      While Mediterranean Salmon Ceviche is best enjoyed fresh, leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours.

      Please, keep in mind that the texture of the salmon may change slightly as it continues to marinate in the citrus juices.

      For optimal freshness and flavor, consume leftovers within the first day of preparation.

      Recipe tips & tricks:

      • To achieve the perfect balance of flavors, allow the salmon to marinate in the orange juice and olive oil mixture for at least 20-30 minutes before adding the remaining ingredients.
      • Don’t forget to season generously with salt and pepper to enhance the natural flavors of the ingredients and bring out their full potential.
      • For a visually stunning presentation, garnish the ceviche with additional chopped herbs and a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil just before serving.

      With its bold flavors and refreshing qualities, this Mediterranean Salmon Ceviche recipe is sure to become a staple in your kitchen.

      Whether you’re hosting a summer soirée or simply craving a taste of Mediterranean dishes, this exquisite Salmon Ceviche is guaranteed to impress!

      5 min

      Prepare salmon

      Begin by cutting the salmon into small, bite-sized pieces. Make sure to remove any bones and skin.
      In a non-reactive bowl, place the salmon pieces. Cut 2 oranges and squeeze juice over salmon.

      20 min

      Marinate salmon

      Pour orange juice over the salmon to completely cover it. Season with a little bit of salt. Let it marinate for about 15-20 minutes to "cook" the salmon slightly in the acidity.
      While the salmon is marinating, prepare the rest of the ingredients.

      3 min

      Cut other vegetables

      Once the salmon has been marinated, add chopped onion, cherry tomatoes, chives, yellow pepper, and parsley to the bowl.
      Drizzle some extra virgin olive oil over the salmon.

      1 min


      Season with salt and pepper to taste.
      Gently toss the ingredients together until evenly combined.

      10 min


      Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 10 minutes to allow the flavors to meld together.
      Before serving, taste and adjust seasoning if necessary.

      1 min


      Your Mediterranean Salmon Ceviche is ready. Enjoy!
