    Default Shrimp ceviche

    It's cold and damp here but I am dreaming of summer and my upcoming trip to Spain and of shrimp ceviche at the beach.

    Ceviche is typically made with red snapper that is "cooked" by the acidity of lime and lemon juice. This version is prepared with shrimp, which is first lightly cooked, and then marinated in the citrus juice.

    1 pound medium-small shrimp, peeled and deveined
    2 Tbsp salt
    3/4 cup lime juice (juice from 4-6 limes)
    3/4 cup lemon juice (juice from 2-3 lemons)
    1 cup finely chopped red onion
    1 serrano chile, ribs and seeds removed, minced
    1 cup chopped cilantro
    1 cucumber, peeled diced into 1/2-inch pieces
    1 avocado, peeled, seed removed, cut into 1/2-inch chunks

    In a large pot, bring to a boil 4 quarts of water, salted with 2 Tbsp salt. Add the shrimp and cook for 1 minute to 2 minutes max, depending on size of shrimp. (Over-cooking the shrimp will turn it rubbery.) Remove shrimp with a slotted spoon and place into a bowl of ice water to stop the cooking.

    Drain the shrimp. Cut each piece of shrimp in half, or into inch-long pieces. Place shrimp in a glass or ceramic bowl. Mix in the lime and lemon juice. Cover and refrigerate for a half hour.

    Mix in the chopped red onion and serrano chile. Refrigerate an additional half hour.

    Right before serving, add the cilantro, cucumber, and avocado.

    Serves 4-6.

    I almost got shrimp at the grocery store today too, but decided against it. I'll have to get some next time we go shopping.

    I like it with scallops, too. Any fish, really.
