Shrimp Ceviche

Today I stepped outside of my comfort zone for dinner and made shrimp ceviche.

My boss at work shared the dish with me which she made the other day and I was hooked. I decided I would recreate the meal and attempt my first ceviche experience tonight.

I started out with some Wild Key West Pink Shrimp from Whole Foods. It was frozen so I let it defrost a bit by running it under the cool water in the sink.

While the shrimp was in the colander, I juiced some lemons and limes.

The recipe called for 6 limes and 2 lemons.

I sliced and diced them.

Then it was time to let the shrimp marinate in the lemon/lime juice. The acids in the juice “cook” the shrimp, it was cool to watch them change colors from clear to pink!

While the shrimp “cooked” I chopped some herbs. This recipe called for a handful of chopped cilantro & flat parsley.

I also chopped up an onion and a red bell pepper.

Add all the herbs, pepper, onion to the lemon/lime mix. A touch of salt, pepper, crushed red pepper and chili powder for a little kick and you are good to go!
