Cerviche with shrimp?

Does anyone have a good DD cerviche with shrimp recipe??? Been searching and can't seem to find one with shrimp. I'm thinking I might pre cook the shrimp a little bit rather than letting the acid from the limes cook it. Any thoughts appreciated. This is my DH's second DD so I am trying to make it really good for him.

Angie, Shrimp ceviche is a perfect DD meal and you can have as many as 15 lg shrimp for 139 cals add a bit of lime juice and avocado for approx. 100 cals which would make the whole meal 239 cals.

Shrimp Ceviche

1 lb of shrimp (around ~ 40 shrimps), cooked. I buy them frozen and cooked from Whole Foods.
2 lemons
2 limes
2 small tomatoes
1/2 an avocado
1/4 cup, or 1 handful, of chopped cilantro
sea salt and pepper to taste
drizzle of EVOO

Start by rinsing frozen shrimp to defrost and take tails off. Chop tomato and avocado into about 1 inch pieces and add to shrimp. Top everything with the juice of lime, lemon, some chopped cilantro, a drizzle of EVOO, sea salt and pepper. So easy and delicious!!

THANKS!!! I didn't realize I could have the avocado! So, you don't precook the shrimp?

Oh - I see - you buy them precooked. Mine are fresh/local and then frozen. I am not sure I trust the acid in the lime to cook the shrimp or how long that would take.

I don't see any reason that either baking or grilling shrimp first would hurt the recipe? I don't believe I would trust the lime to do that either. I wish I lived near the ocean because I would love fresh shrimp.

Only one/half an avocado for the whole recipe which serves about 3 to 4 people. So the calories would be minimal in that case!

SOBX has advantages but also lots of hurricanes!!! I love to do what we do and live in the Caribbean though. That's my dream after we retire, to do this full time, not just on weekends.

Thanks for recipe.

Think I might add a little bit of jalepeno! Oh, and I'll carefully add 1/4 of the avocado and make a batch for the two of us. If I made a batch for four, it would be hard to quit eating it!

I eat a lot of shrimp on DD. In fact, when I first began I ate shrimp almost every down day! It is a fav of mine!

When making ceviche with fish, it should be raw; but when made with the shrimp, they are cooked lightly.

This is the way a lady from Peru told me to make it:
(Sorry, I don't have amounts.)

Cut a red onion in half and then slice very thinly across (so you have half-circle shapes).
Soak them in a bowl of milk or hot water; they will still be tasty & crisp, but it takes away the Bad Breath Power!

While the onions are soaking, peel raw shrimp and simmer the shells in a little water to make a broth. Pour it over the shrimp; this will cook them a little bit.
(My memory's not too clear on this part; IDK if you put the shrimp in a colander & just pour the water over, or put them in a bowl and let them sit in the water for a little bit. Maybe put a pot under the colander, so you save the water; if the shrimp don't seem done enough, throw them in the water for a few minutes.)

Add fresh lime juice, salt & pepper, and the onions. Let marinate in the fridge for 1-2 hours. When ready to serve, mix in fresh chopped cilantro.

I have never had ceviche with tomato or avocado. I think they'd be nice served on the side, though.
If you do want to use tomato, I would de-seed it and let it drain for a bit so they don't make the ceviche too watery.

Some Peruvian ceviche recipes call for a little bit of fresh ginger, grated very finely.
Ecuadorian ones call for a little mustard & ketchup;
Costa Ricans might add a little orange juice mixed in with the lime.

I would not use jalapeño. A pureed red chili, or Sriracha sauce, would be better, IMO.
Or if you have access to a Latin store, there's a super-hot Peruvian pepper called rocoto.
It comes as a paste in a little jar.

¡Buen provecho!

I have had shrimp & scallop (really fresh and lime-cooked in the olden days, very lightly cooked lately) ceviche with de-seeded tomato, avocado, and several different peppers. Each bite was a taste sensation. Hmmm, I think I know what I am eating some time soon
