  • Serve chilled with Tostones... AND DONE!!!


  • Keep the shrimp cold at all times. While prepping the ingredients, keep the shrimp in the fridge.
  • Feel free to play around with the citrus ratios depending on what flavor profile you prefer. However to try to use at least 3/4 cup of citrus for 1 LB of shrimp. Remember the citrus is what is "cooking" the shrimp
  • Serve the ceviche with crispy Tostones. Find my recipe for Garlic Tostones HERE. And for an extra touch serve it was my Garlic sauce.
