How To Make Shrimp Ceviche

Sometimes cooking is like science and sometimes it’s like magic. Ceviche combines a bit of both and shows the true power of high acidity fruit! In this Latin dish, raw fish of your choosing gets cooked with the “heat” created from lemon and lime juice. Throw in some peppers, shallot and cilantro and one of the freshest dishes you could ever dream up is created. Enjoy with mixed greens, crusty bread or crackers for a light and summery dish that’s even better the next day.
