Instructions Checklist

  • Squeeze the remaining limes into another bowl. Add remaining salt and pepper.

  • Bring a 1- to 2-quart pot of water to a boil. Place shrimp into the boiling water for 45 seconds. Quickly remove from the water using a strainer.

  • Chop the partially cooked shrimp into small pieces and add to the bowl with the seasoned lime mixture. Let sit for 20 minutes. Combine with the cucumber mixture and top with avocados.

Cook's Note:

Unlike fish ceviche recipes, shrimp should not marinade in lime/lemon juice for hours. The poaching technique will give the shrimp a stable texture and also minimize the risks associated with consuming raw seafood.

Simple but delicious. When tasting for salt, taste along with salted tostada or chips you’ll be pairing ceviche with to avoid over salting. And don’t skip the avocado! Read More

An easy recipe that is sure to please. I like to add scallops as they are similar in texture and adds diversity to the flavor. Read More

This was great! Super refreshing meal that ended up being more like a salad. My bag of frozen shrimp came as 12oz, so I used the whole bag. I also swapped jalapeños for the serranos since that's what I had on hand. I marinated the shrimp in raw lime juice for 4 hours hoping it would fully acid cook, but it didn't quite make it, so I ended up tossing shrimp and lime into a sauté pan for just about 3 minutes to warm through. Made a quick avocado mash with garlic and lime juice to spread on the bottom, then tossed the ceviche across the top. Ate with some Taco Bell Fire flavored Doritos that were somewhat disappointing as chips but worked well as quasi-croutons. Read More
