Ceviche is a Peruvian seafood dish that is typically made from fresh raw fish, cooked or cured in fresh lemon or lime juice. Seasoned with garlic, chilli and fresh herbs. If ou are catering for friends or family who are non meat eaters, the fish can be substituted with oyster mushrooms. While mushrooms don't add any protein value they hold the marinade and texture in a similar way to fish.
200 grams fresh salmon or trout (or any other fresh fish), rinsed and chopped into cubes. Substitute with the same quality oyster mushrooms if you are wanting to create a vegetarian version.
