This week’s Avocados From Mexico post takes us to Chicha Peruvian Restaurant for ceviche! If you haven’t been to Chicha, you are truly missing out on the best Latin food in Vancouver. Chef Shelome Bouvette excels at ceviche and this recipe has some avocado in the dressing and in the final presentation. It’s healthy and while it does take a bit of time to assemble, you’ll have dressing left over that is perfect for salads or topping some grilled veggies!
1lb cleaned and deboned wild salmon cut into cubes
1 bunch cilantro finely chopped
2 jalapeños deseeded and finely diced.
Passion fruit ginger dressing:
1 cup lemon ponzu ( can get in Asian section in supermarket.)

1 cup of mayonnaise
