Little B checking this out, making sure my hair and makeup were on point.

Summer Shrimp Ceviche

1 lb. Large shrimp (cooked or raw)

1 English cucumber

2 avocados

1 bunch cilantro

½ red onion, sliced thin or diced

4-5 limes

1 jalapeno seeded and diced or 2 tbsp. pickled jalapeno

Kosher salt

Cooked Shrimp Ceviche:

Dice ½ lb. shrimp. Leave the other half whole.

Place the shrimp in a bowl. Then add the juice of 4-5 limes. Dice your cucumber. I like to leave the skin on. But if the cucumber skin is on the thick side, quickly use a vegetable peeler to take it off. Dice or slice thin, the red onion. Add the cucumber and onion to the shrimp bowl with lime juice.  Dice your jalapeno, take the seeds out, or leave them in for more heat.  Add to the shrimp bowl. Roughly chop the cilantro, and add to the shrimp bow. Lastly, add the avocado, peeled and diced. Stir gently to combine. Season with salt to your liking.

Allow this shrimp mixture to chill in the fridge. At least 20 minutes, up to 3-4 hours. Then serve with tortilla chips, jicama, fresh tortillas.

Raw Shrimp Ceviche:

Dice ½ lb. shrimp. Leave the other half whole. I’d take the tail off, clean the shrimp.

Place the shrimp in a bowl. Then add the juice of 4-5 limes. Cover and chill for 15-20 minutes until shrimp is “cooked” by the lime juice.

Dice your cucumber. I like to leave the skin on. But if the cucumber skin is on the thick side, quickly use a vegetable peeler to take it off. Dice or slice thin, the red onion. Add the cucumber and onion to the shrimp bowl with lime juice.  Dice your jalapeno, take the seeds out, or leave them in for more heat.  Add to the shrimp bowl. Roughly chop the cilantro, and add to the shrimp bow. Lastly, add the avocado, peeled and diced. Stir gently to combine. Season with salt to your liking.

Allow this shrimp mixture to chill in the fridge. At least 20 minutes, up to 3-4 hours. Then serve with tortilla chips, jicama, fresh tortillas.
