How to Make Shrimp Ceviche:

First, dice your onion, green pepper, cucumber and tomatoes and add to a bowl.  You’ll want to dice these as close to the same size as possible.  A food chopper is perfect for this if you have one, for both accuracy and time efficient!

Next, using a garlic press, press your garlic into the mixture with the diced vegetables.

Chop your cilantro and add to the bowl.  Squeeze the juice from your lime and the juice from half a lemon into the bowl.

Then chop up your already cooked shrimp and add to the bowl.  Add salt and pepper to taste and stir well.

Last, chop your avocado and stir into the mixture.  I always add the avocado last so it doesn’t get mushy.

This Shrimp Ceviche recipe makes a perfect dip when served with chips.  It also makes a great filling for tacos.  I love to eat it over lettuce for a salad or over my favorite Restaurant Style Mexican Rice Recipe.
