Shrimp ceviche is extremely fresh, tasty and healthy to boot. It is quite easy to make. I use boiled shrimp in mine because I prefer not to have to deal with bacteria that might get the family sick. Unlike other ceviches, this one is ready to eat within one hour. You can boil your own shrimp or, if you prefer, buy cooked shrimp from the grocery store. Just make sure it is only boiled and has no marinades or flavorings to it. Here is what you are going to need:
2 pounds boiled shrimp – chopped
5 limes – juiced
2 medium oranges – juiced
3 TBS minced red onion
1 TBS minced green chili – serrano or jalapeno
3 TBS minced cilantro
1 1/2 cup peeled, seeded and chopped cucmber
1 cup diced avocados
Place the shrimp in a glass or ceramic bowl. Add the juices and salt to taste. Mix, cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Add the onion and chili pepper to the shrimp. Mix, cover and refrigerate for another 30 minutes.
Remove shrimp from fridge and add cilantro, cucumbers and avocado. Mix well and re-season with salt if necessary. Serve on tostadas and enjoy!
