Servings 10 to 12 patacones/tostones topped with salmon and tuna poke ceviche


  • ¼ lb of sashimi grade wild salmon skinless and boneless, cut into small cubes
  • ¼ lb of sashimi grade tuna skinless and boneless, cut into small cubes
  • 2-3 tablespoons of avocado or olive oil
  • ½ tablespoon sesame oil adjust to taste
  • 1 tablespoon of finely chopped chives
  • ½ to 1 hot pepper seeds and veins removed, finely diced, adjust to taste
  • ½ teaspoon grated or crushed ginger adjust to taste
  • 2 tablespoon of soy sauce adjust to taste

To serve and garnish:


  • In a small ceramic or glass bowl, combine the salmon and tuna with the avocado oil and sesame oil, mix gently until the fish is coated with the oil – this will prevent it from oxidizing. Add the chives, ginger, hot pepper, and soy sauce. Mix well, cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes or until ready to serve.
  • While the poke ceviche is marinating, prepare the patacones or tostones. They can be made the traditional way or you can form them into a round mini cup/bowl form to be filled with the ceviche. To shape them into a round cup shape, place the plantain chip after the first frying, into a lemon/citrus squeezer and gently press it, then remove it very gently, and fry it again as you would with the regular patacones.
  • Serve the salmon and tuna poke inspired ceviche on top of the plantain chips or inside the plantain cups. Top with a drizzle of lime juice, the pickled red onions, cilantro leaves, hot sauce to taste, and any other garnishes you prefer.
