Shrimp Ceviche


Shrimp Ceviche is typically made from fresh raw shrimp marinated in citrus juices such as lemon or lime.  As the dish is not cooked with heat, it must be prepared fresh to minimize the risk of food poisoning but I feel it’s safer if not easier to prepare it with frozen cooked shrimp.

    I love shrimp ceviche! I’ve never made it at home though – only had it in restaurants.

      It does scare me little to use the lime juice to “cook’ it. That’s why I opted to use frozen cooked shrimp.
