Shrimp Ceviche Recipe

I decided to try a different type of summer dish- shrimp ceviche. For those that are not yet familiar with this, ceviche is citrus marinated seafood.  The shrimp is first marinated in lime juice and mixed with tomato, cilantro and onion. The hot pepper sauce gives this dish a nice little kick. Traditionally the shrimp are raw and cooked in the acid from the lime juice.  However, since this method apparently is not proven to kill bacteria, please use pre-cooked shrimp. This dish reminds me a lot of a salsa and goes great with tortilla chips. Shrimp ceviche is perfect for a hot summer day. Enjoy.


2 lbs cooked shrimp (peeled, deveined with tails off)
¾ cup fresh lime juice
3 roma tomatoes (diced)
1 white onion (chopped)
½ cup fresh cilantro (chopped)
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon ketchup
1 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
salt and pepper (to taste)
1 avocado (peeled, pitted and diced)
tortilla chips

Cooking Instructions:

Step 1: Chop shrimp into medium sized pieces. In a large bowl mix shrimp and lime juice. Let stand for about 5 minutes. Mix in the tomatoes, onion and cilantro until coated with lime juice. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.
Step 2: Mix in Worcestershire sauce, ketchup, hot pepper sauce, salt and pepper. Mix in avocados. Serve with tortilla chips.
(Makes 4 Servings)

    As usual, this recipe looks awesome! I’ve been afraid to try a true ceviche – I’ll take your suggestion of trying precooked shrimp. Thanks for a great idea!

    This recipe arrived in my inbox the night before I was hosting a lunch for 30 friends. And then it hit me – I was missing something with seafood on the menu! I keep a couple lbs of big shrimp from Costco in the freezer, and ran out the next morning for the rest of the ingredients that I did not have on hand. So easy, SO good and fresh – it was by far the most popular dish of the day. It has now found a permanent spot in my summer menu planning files!
