Salmon Ceviche with a Florida Grapefruit Dressing

 Salmon Ceviche with Cucumber, Chive and Florida Grapefruit dressing - sound good?  Then read on.......

You may remember a while back when I told you about a competition Florida Grapefruit were holding over at their FaceBook page.  Well last week I went to London along with a few other food bloggers and had a lovely day with the winner Victoria Ashley and Celebrity Masterchef winner Lisa Faulkner.
Victoria won the competition with her delicious Florida grapefruit, honey and
ginger cheesecake!

Lisa showed us a couple of recipes using Florida grapefruit which is the sweetest and juiciest variety of grapefruit!  Perfect for making dressings and a whole load of recipes I wouldn't have thought of.
First of all here we are, Helen, Michelle and myself segmenting a grapefruit.

I was quite pleased with my segments!

Then we watched Victoria making her winning cheesecake with Lisa as her helper.

Then we all sat down to a lovely dinner and the main dish 'Smoked chicken, avocado and Florida grapefruit salad' which was yummy!

Here is Lisa's recipe for Salmon Ceviche with cucumber chive and Florida grapefruit dressing:

To serve 4 you will need:
400g salmon fillet - skinned and pin-boned and sliced as thin as possible.
Florida grapefruit
80ml extra virgin olive oil
40ml white wine vinegar
1 tablespoon of freshly chopped chives
1 cucumber
salt and pepper to season

Peel the cucumber, deseed and finely slice into ribbons
Segment the Florida grapefruit and dice
In a bowl, mix the oil, vinegar and then season.  Add the chives and stir.
Arrange the salmon, cucumber and grapefruit on a plate and pour over the dressing.  Serve straight away.

Congratulations to Victoria for her winning recipe!  And thank you to Lisa and Neil and his team for a great day.

  1. Looks like you had a super day Jan! I hardly ever eat grapefruit, I suppose I should give it another go.


Thanks for taking the time to comment - much appreciated.
