When Anna-Christin Haas, co-founder and design director of Galvan London and close friend of Dr. Barbara Sturm made this ceviche for us, we were so blown away with how delicious it is, we had to ask her for the recipe! This nutritious and fruity ceviche takes a bit of time to make (it has to be prepared a few hours in advance) but it’s incredibly easy and guaranteed to “wow” your guests or family.
"I love making this dish as a starter when we have friends over. It's delicious, unexpected, easy and a crowd-pleaser. The lime, mango and avocado make it really fresh and it pairs well with a good tequila.”

The ceviche is packed with various anti-inflammatory ingredients such as salmon, which is rich in healthy Omega-3 fatty acids, avocados, which are a wonderful source of healthy fats and antioxidant-rich tomatoes. And for a fruity twist, Anna also adds oranges, pomegranate seeds and mango. Read on for the full recipe.
