Zesty Lime-Infused Shrimp Ceviche

Ceviche is a culinary marvel that transforms fresh fish into a delightful dish through a citrusy marinade. This recipe embraces the magic of lime juice, allowing it to ‘cook’ pre-cooked shrimp, creating a burst of flavors. While the absence of heat maintains the dish’s lightness, the infusion of lime and an abundance of fresh vegetables ensures a healthy and flavorsome culinary experience.

Ingredients & Substitutions

  1. Shrimp: Opt for pre-cooked, peeled, deveined, and tail-removed shrimp for convenience. Alternatively, raw shrimp can be used, marinating in lime juice for approximately 15 minutes until opaque with pink tints, signaling readiness. For fresh shrimp, deveining is optional. To peel, start from underneath and remove the tail. Optionally, devein by making a shallow slit along the back and removing the black vein with a knife.
  2. Vegetables: The heart of ceviche lies in fresh vegetables. Customize your dish with favorites like avocados, corn, olives, or others. Tackling jalapeno peppers may be the trickiest part; to seed them, slice vertically and use a spoon or slice along the sides, leaving seeds attached to the core before chopping strips. Exercise caution to avoid touching your face or eyes while handling peppers.
