Okanagan Sockeye Salmon Ceviche on Bannock

Combining Okanagan Bannock from Westbank’s Kekuli Cafe with Okanagan Sockeye Salmon from Osoyoos Lake, this refreshing take on the classic ceviche offers a delightful experience suited for light lunches or special gatherings.

“Cooked” in a Lemon Juice and Onion marinade, the Sockeye Salmon turns opaque, yet remains delicate and rich, without drying-out.
