What is Shrimp Ceviche?
So what exactly is shrimp ceviche? Shrimp ceviche is traditionally raw shrimp, combined with fresh herbs, onion, and lime juice. The lime juice actually “cooks” the shrimp. To put it together, you combine the marinade (the lime juice) and other fresh ingredients and let it sit for a few minutes until the shrimp turns opaque. This shrimp ceviche salad uses cooked shrimp, because we know how raw seafood can make some people uneasy! And as an added bonus, you won’t have to wait for the shrimp to sit and “cook” with this recipe!
- cooked shrimp – 1 lb
- lime juice – 1/2 cup
- 1/2 red onion
- large avocado
- 2 T fresh cilantro
- 1/4 t salt
How to Make Shrimp Ceviche Salad
Shrimp ceviche salad really only requires some chopping, making it an easy, quick dinner! So, bring out that cutting board and a good, sharp knife and start cutting! Chop, chop, chop and chop some more. Firstly, dice up the onion, tomato, cucumber, avocado, and jalapeño. If you don’t want the heat, be sure to take out the seeds from the jalapeño before chopping! After that, cut the shrimp into smaller pieces. Then, add it all to a big bowl.
After that, it’s time to add the shrimp ceviche flavor! Now mince the fresh cilantro and add it to the bowl. Lastly, add the lime juice and salt and give it another toss!
Stir, stir and stir some more. To store for later, cover and put it in the fridge.
