Traditional shrimp ceviche is made by 'cooking' raw shrimp in the acid of citrus juice, like lime or grapefruit. In this coastal take on the classic recipe, the shrimp are instead gently cooked in boiling water and cooled before bathing in a creamy marinade of coconut milk. The result: a recipe so easy and refreshing that it will transport you to a breezy beach-side café after one silky bite.

Stir in red bell pepper, red onion, jalapeno, garlic and chopped cilantro. Add cooled shrimp to coconut mixture; stir to completely cover and submerge shrimp in liquid. Cover bowl and transfer to refrigerator. Chill at least 30 minutes, up to about 24 hours, before serving.
