Shrimp Ceviche



This is delicious, healthy, and easy to make! It is the perfect dish to make during warm weather, as it does not involve slaving over a hot stove.

Shrimp Ceviche

Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 3 hours

Ingredients:

•3 lbs small or medium raw shrimp, cleaned
•4 large tomatoes, seeded and diced
•6 limes, juiced
•4 lemons, juiced
•1 cup cilantro leaves, chopped
•1 serrano chile, seeded and finely chopped
•1/2 of a cucumber, peeled and diced (optional)
•1 red onion, diced
•salt and pepper to taste
•3 tablespoons tomato sauce (or ketchup)

Preparation:

Lay out shrimp in the bottom of glass baking dish. Pour lemon and lime juice over them and refrigerate for 3 hours. The juice will "cook" the shrimp. Toss with remaining ingredients and refrigerate for one more hour or longer. Enjoy with tortilla chips, plain crackers, or as a topper for grilled fish. I recommend serving with ice cold beer or margaritas!
