This Mexican Ceviche can be compared to a shrimp salsa. It’s loaded with tomatoes, onion and cilantro. Sprinkle it with hot sauce and serve! My sister-in-law Zhanna first introduced us to this recipe for shrimp ceviche.

I recently learned that ceviche is made with raw shrimp and it is “cooked” in the acidity of the lime juice. That seems too brave for me and it’s easier to work with pre-cooked shrimp.

Ingredients for Mexican Ceviche:

1 lb pre-cooked shrimp meat
3-4 medium tomatoes, diced
1 medium onion, diced
1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro (1/2 of a bunch)
1 cup freshly squeezed lime juice (5-6 limes)
1 bag tortilla chips

How to Make Mexican Ceviche:

1. Rinse and thoroughly drain the cook shrimp meat. Squeeze out excess juice with your hands.

2. Using this  awesome citrus juicer, squeeze the juice from limes after washing them, then combine shrimp and freshly squeezed lime juice. Marinate in fridge for 20 min.

    It’s not Mexican ceviche if you are pre cooking the shrimp. Traditionally the shrimp goes in raw, into lots of lemon or lime juice, and get cooked by the citrus. That is how Mexican ceviche is made Reply

      I know but I can’t handle the thought of raw shrimp. I know it’s cooked in the citrus but it still doesn’t sit well with me. This is our version of ceviche and it is how we always make it and it tastes great! Do you make yours with raw shrimp? Reply

    This recipe looks delicious! Totally up my alley:-) My question is, do you drain the shrimp after it has marinated in the lime juice, or you combine everything together with the tomato/onion mixture? Reply

      No need to drain. Stir it all together. The lime juice gives the whole salsa a fantastic zestyness 😉 Reply
