Tangerine & Sea Buckthorn Ceviche Marinade
Sea buckthorn is the highlight of this recipe—rich in vitamin C, it's an amazing local source of acidity—, but the tangerine balances out the sourness and adds some citrus notes for an even better final result.
You can use this recipe to season a ceviche or a salad of your choice, but it can also work as a dipping sauce for sashimi.
The tangerine juice can be replaced with orange juice, and the sea buckthorn juice can be replaced with lime or lemon juice.
