Shrimp Ceviche Baja Style


This ceviche will give you a hint of Baja California. This is my grandma Isabel Flores' recipe. Garnish with fresh oregano. Enjoy with tostadas and ketchup. I enjoy my ceviche spreading a thin layer of mayonnaise in my tostada prior to add the ceviche. From my table to yours. Enjoy.
