Spicy Cucumber-Salmon Ceviche

The refreshing, cooling effect of cucumber is pretty much blown right out of the water with some serious firepower from none other than dried Thai bird's-eye chile peppers (also known as just Thai chile peppers, to avoid confusion). So, if you like to sweat while noshing on some tortilla chips, this is the ticket.
