This recipe is packed with Mexican and Asian inspired elements that will leave your taste buds wanting more. The combination of cilantro, soy, ginger, jalapeno and lime is the perfect balance to the lean flesh of the tuna. The ingredients excite the dish by adding classic elements of sweet, salt, tang and spice.

Mexican Style Ceviche
its Ceviche Time Ceviche (pronounced say-v- chay) could be, in my opinion, one of the most delicious ways to enjoy fish! This dish is typically made by curing or cooking the fish in just the juice from citrus fruit, like limes or lemons. This simple preparation allows for a plethora of flavor combinations to suit your taste. Since I am a huge fan of Mexican food, I went south of the border for this colorful appetizer. My mix of avocado, cilantro, tomato, jalapeno and corn made this ceviche a yummy Mexican treat.

Salt & Pepper Shrimp and Calamari
Salt and pepper shrimp and calmari Salt and pepper shrimp (or) calamari is a dish I frequently order when at Chinese restaurants, but have never thought to make it at home. It is the perfect appetizer or can be served as a main course. I love that the shrimp has a crispy texture even without being heavily battered.

Pan Seared Salmon with Lemon, Dill & Capers
  Salmon with Lemon, Capers and Dill One thing I have learned from my husband is the best salmon comes from Alaska. He has told me numerous stories about his days as a commercial salmon fisherman and his dip netting experiences back in Anchorage. Getting fresh Alaskan Salmon in the lower 48 does come at cost, but I think it is worth it. I found this beautiful piece of fish at Whole Foods and I was very excited to pair it with some fresh dill, lemon and capers.
