Justin Uchtman is the executive Chef at Sartre OTR. He's a good friend of Rhinegeist, a big fan of obscure live Cypress Hill bootlegs, waits in line at the peach truck just like the rest of us, and loves cooking with beer.
Summer is in full swing, which means outdoor grill outs, languid poolside days, fresh fruits and vegetables from the garden, and PEACH DODO. In honor of the season, Chef Justin Uchtman from Sartre OTR has put together this super-fresh and summery salmon-centered mélange featuring our supremely sessionable, food-friendly, warm weather Gose. Ceviche is a great summertime party appetizer, lunch for two, or post-dip midday snack, and the addition of Peach Dodo and fresh peaches takes it to the next level. Outside of the core lineup of all-stars in this dish (Salmon, Peaches, and Dodo), many of the ingredients can be substituted—just pick your favorite fresh summer veggies, fruits, and herbs, play around, and enjoy!
