How to: easy shrimp ceviche

I've always loved seafood! When I say love, I mean LOVE with capital letters!!! I'm a big eater but not a great cooker but sometimes I can do wonders with my hands. So here's my take on an easy ceviche.

 You will need:
  • About 20 shrimps, peeled and deveined (I am using 21/25, but I find using the 26/30 better because the shrimps won't be as thick) 
  • 1/3 of a big red onion
  • A pinch of salt, pepper and sodium 
  • A teaspoon of fish sauce (you can add more later according to your taste)
  • 1/3 of a cup of cilantro (you can put as much as you like, but not too much) 
  • 2 big citrus (I've actually use 2 and a half because I like it sour) 

1. Chop the cilantro and red onion into very little pieces; leave them on the side. Then, cut all the shrimp in half (but in horizontal). Cut the citrus in half and then cut the half in three pieces; repeat this step with all the citrus and leave them on the side as well.

2. Put all the chopped shrimps, red onion and cilantro into a mixing bowl and mix them all together.

3. Then, add the salt, pepper, sodium and fish sauce into the bowl and mix it well. Squeeze all the juice from the citrus into the bowl and mix everything together. Refrigerate an additional 15 minute then enjoy :)

serves 2-3, depending on the person who's serving :p 

with love

  1. I absolutely LOVE seafood too! (Also with capital letters). I can't get enough of it and 10 out of 10 times I will order something with seafood if its on the menu. With that said, I had never seen a ceviche made with fish sauce but I am down to try it! Thanks for the recipe and I hope to see more seafood recipe posts!
