Ceviche of Smoked Marlin Salad

This is one of the most refreshing salad dishes by Chef Conroy. It’s crisp and fresh, and the smokiness of the marlin creates an incredibly memorable experience. The thinner the marlin slice the better.

Keeping the marlin in the freezer before cutting allows for a thinner slice.
