Shrimp Ceviche

You can prep your ingredients a day or two before event, then mix together on the day of event. Quick and easy.

Serves 4-6 people, Prep is 15 minutes, Marinate time is 15 minutes to 6 hours (I prefer at least 1 hour)

Acid is what ensures the shrimp are safe eat. Technically it's not cooked as cooking requires heat. The acid process is referred to as denaturing.

PREP - 15 minutes, Marinating 1-8 hours, Serve - 5 minutes


  • 2 pounds shrimp raw (or white fish Sea bass, striped bass, grouper are best) or combine both

  • 1/2 cup red onion thinly sliced

  • 1 jalapeno ribs and seeds removed, then minced

  • 3/4 cup cucumber diced

  • 1 cup roma tomatoes seeded and diced

  • 1/2 cup cilantro leaves chopped

  • 1/2 cup lime juice

  • 1/2 cup lemon juice

  • Dash of chili flakes (optional)

Last step before you serve

  • Add 1 avocado peeled, seeded and chopped

  • Serve with corn chips


  1. Mix all ingredients (except avocado), you can do this 1-8 hours before event

  2. Add the avocado right before you serve


Adding the avocado last ensures it won't get soggy

Lemon and Limes are acid based, this is what cooks the shrimp
