1.5cm Fresh Ginger, peeled
1 Celery stick, roughly chopped
½ Red onion, roughly chopped
1 Garlic clove, peeled, left whole
1 tbsp Sea salt
½ tsp Sugar
Bunch Coriander stems (tied together)
2 Limes, juiced
2 Ice cube
4 Brazil nuts, toasted
200g Salmon filets, deboned and skinned
1 Avocado, ripe but not too soft
1 Red onion, medium
1/2 Red chili (optional)
Place the ginger, celery, onion, salt and sugar in the bowl of a blender and process until puréed.
Add the whole coriander stems to the purée and leave to marinate in the fridge for 1-3 hours. Then remove and discard the coriander. If you tie the stems with a piece of string it will make it easier to lift them out of the marinade.
10 minutes before the first stage of the marinade is finished, get the fish out of the fridge and cut into 1cm cubes. Put in a mixing bowl. Peel and cut the avocado in cubes of approximately the same size as the salmon and add to the fish.
Slice the onion as thin as you possibly can with a mandolin or sharp knife and add to the bowl with the fish and avocado. Slice the chili, if using, very thinly too and reserve.
To finish the marinade, add the lime juice and ice cubes to 1tbsp of the marinade you’ve got in the fridge and blitz it in the food processor.
Strain through a fine mesh sieve into a glass bowl and reserve in the fridge, for a maximum of 10min, while you assemble the fish.
Toast the brazil nuts for a couple of minutes in a dry pan and let cool down. Chop or crush roughly.
Divide the fish, avocado and onion mix into four small plates. Pour about 1 tbsp. of marinade over each of the plates. Make sure you don’t overdo it, there should not be too much liquid around the ceviche. Garnish with the brazil nuts and sliced chili and serve immediately.
