The Daily Meal recipe editor, Julie Ruggirello shows you how to make a simple shrimp ceviche.

Ceviche is a South American seafood dish that uses citrus or vinegar (in this case, lime juice) to “cook” the seafood. This easy and delicious ceviche is made with fresh raw shrimp. It even has a shot or tequila for a little bit of sweetness.

 

The first step in making shrimp ceviche is to dice all of your vegetables (this recipe calls for chopped carrot, jalapeño, onion, and tomato), mix them in a bowl, and set them aside. Chop some fresh cilantro and set it aside as well.

Add lime juice to the shrimp until it is completely covered. Let the shrimp “cook” in the lime juice until opaque and slightly pink, about 15 minutes.

Then, drain about half the lime juice from the shrimp and add the chopped vegetables, fresh cilantro, and a shot of tequila. Season the mixture with salt and pepper and stir to combine.
