Purists will notice that in their country of origin, Peru, ceviche is traditionally made with only white-fleshed fish. However, this variant with salmon, grapefruit, a good portion of coriander vegetables and spring onions is worth a try.
The fish, which really should be of sushi quality, is thinly sliced and then marinated in citrus juice for about 15 minutes. The acid denatures the fish protein almost as it does during the cooking process. This can be seen from the fact that the rose of the raw salmon is slowly turning whitish. Eventually the salmon is no longer completely raw, but more or less cooked in grapefruit and lime juice.
