Ceviche is a seafood dish made from fresh raw fish and cured in lemon or lime juice. Over the course of a few hours the citrus juice will begin to “cook” the seafood without the use of a heat source.
Our Shrimp Ceviche recipe is a SHORTCUT version of the typical ceviche preparation and therefore calls for cooking and then immediately cooling the shrimp in an ice bath. In doing this preparation the seafood is not served raw and can be made within minutes rather than hours.

2 pounds raw shrimp, peed and deveined
2 Persian cumbers, chopped
15 cherry tomatoes, cut in quarters
2 avocados, diced
1 jalapeno, minced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/8 cup cilantro

Bring a small pot of water to boil. Add the raw, peed and deveined shrimp; boil for 2-3 minutes or until pink. Drain and transfer cooked shrimp to a bowl of cold ice water to stop the cooking process and let cool. Once the shrimp are cold, drain and place into a small bowl.
To the bowl of cooled shrimp add cucumbers, tomatoes, avocados, jalapeño, garlic, lime, cilantro, salt and pepper. Mix to combine. Serve & enjoy!
