Salmon ceviche is a "raw" way to get those wonderful Omega 3 fatty acids. Ceviche is a technique that involves marinating fish with some sort of acid.
Citrus fruits such as lemons, limes, and oranges are typically used when marinating fish. And a fish ceviche can be made with a variety of fish - especially white firm fish.
However, wild caught salmon makes a great choice for a fish ceviche. There are many different ways to flavor a salmon ceviche and marinating your salmon for a short amount of time will give it a sort of al dente texture.
I like the tropical feel of this fish ceviche and it's a great way to use fruit chutneys.
Plate this ceviche in attractive glasses or Martini glasses. Top with toasted coconut.
You could also drizzle on a little homemade raw coconut milk (if you have some) to make this ceviche even more tropical.
Mix together the banana chutney and lime juice. Then add in the cubed salmon and stir to coat each piece of fish. Marinate in the refrigerator for 15 minutes.
Remove ceviche from refrigerator and add the red onions - marinate for 10 more minutes in the refrigerator.
Take ceviche out of refrigerator. Add the scallions and cilantro.

Marinating Fish Tips
Marinating fish can range from a few minutes to a few hours and even
overnight. As a general rule, the longer you marinate fish - the tougher your
fish will be. The acid from citrus fruits will change the texture of the proteins in your fish and make it appear "cooked".
I would use a glass or ceramic bowl for marinating fish. And I would stay away from using metal bowls - or you might end up with a metallic tasting ceviche! Have fun experimenting with different flavors, marinating times, and wild caught fish when making your fish ceviche.
