You can’t go wrong with seafood in the summer…especially when it’s as delicious as this. This salmon crudo is light, healthy and just the right amount of fancy, which will wow the lucky souls you feed it to. It comes courtesy of Chef John Acosta of Ristorante Per L’Ora in L.A.

This dish is in honor of my mentor Jeremy Sung, who inspired me to use different citruses to elevate a simple dish. This is a great one for summer! On days you want to escape the heat make this the light, citrusy salmon crudo certified to cool you down. A refreshing citrus ponzu is the perfect antidote to summer’s heat, combining tangy zest with cooling sensations to invigorate your palate and refresh your senses”
