Salmon Seviche with Orange, Capers, and Roasted Poblano Chiles

Yield Makes 8 servings


  • 1 pound skinless salmon, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 2/3 cup fresh lime juice
  • 2/3 cup fresh orange juice
  • 1 medium red onion, chopped into 1/4-inch pieces
  • 2 large poblano chiles
  • 1 large orange
  • 2 tablespoons capers, rinsed and drained
  • 1/3 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 lightly packed cups frisée lettuce
  • Garnish: fresh cilantro

How to Make It

  1. Combine salmon and next 3 ingredients in a stainless steel or glass bowl. Cover and refrigerate 2 hours. (Salmon will be opaque on the outside and translucent pink inside.) Drain all but 1/4 cup of juice.

  2. Broil chiles on an aluminum foil-lined baking sheet 5 inches from heat (with electric oven door partially open) about 5 minutes on each side or until peppers look blistered. Let stand 10 minutes. Peel peppers; remove and discard seeds and stem. Cut into 1/4-inch pieces, and stir into salmon mixture.

  3. Peel orange with a sharp knife to remove rind and white pith. Cut into segments, discarding any seeds. Halve segments; add to salmon mixture. Stir in capers, cilantro, and salt. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.

  4. Divide the frisée among 8 martini glasses or serving bowls. Spoon seviche into center of frisée; garnish, if desired. Serve with crackers or crostini.
