Tuna Ceviche with Grilled Salmon (Sea-Ngulaw)
By Chef Sharwin Tee, Cookbook Author and Cooking Show Host
Grilled Salmon shines in Sea-Nuglaw, Chef Sharwin’s scrumptious variation of the popular Filipino dish, Sinuglaw, a raw marinated fish salad often paired with grilled pork.
Total time: 30 minutes
Servings: 2 persons
A: Kinilaw (Tuna Ceviche)
150g tuna, cut into small cubes
1 under-ripe mango*, peeled and julienned
1 red onion, peeled and sliced thinly
1 chilli padi, chopped
185 ml (¾ cup) coconut vinegar
Thumb-size ginger, peeled and sliced thinly
2 calamansi, juiced
Sea salt and pepper to taste
B: Sugba (Grilled Salmon)
150g salmon fillets, cut into fingers
1 teaspoon fish sauce
1 tablespoon coconut vinegar
1 tablespoon banana catsup or tomato ketchup
Butterfly pea flowers, optional
1. In a small mixing bowl, combine catsup/ketchup, vinegar and fish sauce under B to marinate the salmon. Set aside for 10 minutes.
2. In another mixing bowl, combine marinade under A. Allow tuna to marinate for 10 minutes.
3. Heat up a non-stick saucepan over high heat. Grill salmon until fully cooked, about 2 minutes each side.
4. To assemble the dish, divide the ceviche between 2 serving plates. Top with freshly grilled salmon. Season with salt and pepper.
5. Garnish with the blue flowers, if desired. Serve immediately.
NOTE: Coconut vinegar is available at Filipino shops, Lucky Plaza in Singapore. Alternatively, use apple-cider vinegar.
*TIP: The mango is still firm to the touch, with yellow flesh underneath green skin that tastes sour and a little tart.
