What Is Mexican Ceviche?
Ceviche is a cold seafood dish, similar to gazpacho. Seafood marinates in a lime and tomato mixture to absorb the flavors and “cook” the seafood. Often made with fish, lime, tomatoes, and onion, ceviche ingredients can differ based on region. You can serve ceviche with crackers or tortilla chips.
How to Make Mexican Shrimp Ceviche
Prep for Mexican Shrimp Ceviche is simple. Once the shrimp are poached in the boiling water, simply mix the remaining ingredients and refrigerate for up to four hours. Add fresh avocado to create texture and add rich flavor to the zesty mix.
Fresh raw shrimp looks bluish. After marinating, the lime juice and mixture will slowly turn the color to pink. Eat this dish fresh–shrimp ceviche is not meant to be kept for leftovers.
