After a night of gluttony and another one planned tomorrow, I thought some healthy restraint was in order. This tasty, simple to prepare salad fits the bill perfectly.

This recipe is very similar to a basic South American ceviche.

Chef's notes

Don't be tempted to add salt as processed mackerel can be quite salty already.
