Step by step recipe with photo
Shrimp Ceviche is a wonderful bright and tasty seafood dish that began its culinary history in Peru. Traditionally, fish or seafood is marinated in lime juice, but this is if they are fresh or frozen. Since in our region only boiled-frozen shrimps are often sold, you can marinate them in lemon or orange juice. Marinated seafood is served with vegetable or fruit salsa seasoned with olive oil and vinegar: basil, raspberry apple, etc.
Shrimp ceviche can be served with a glass of sparkling white wine for dinner, perfect for a romantic tete-a-tete.
Prepare the food you need. You can defrost the shrimp, or you don't have to bother with it.
In a saucepan, boil water and place the shrimp in it, add salt, bring to a boil and turn off the heat, leaving the seafood to cool in the water for 5 minutes.
This applies only to boiled-frozen shrimps, since we no longer need to cook them, but just need to warm them up. Boil freshly frozen shrimp for 3-5 minutes.
Squeeze the juice from half a lemon and an orange on a press.
Transfer it to a deep bowl or other container.
Remove the shrimp with a slotted spoon and peel off the shell, and be sure to remove the intestinal vein - it runs along the entire length of the tail!
Put the peeled, warm shrimp in citrus juice and leave it there for 25 minutes. During cooling, they will draw the juice into themselves.
At this time, peel the onion and the seeds from the bell pepper by washing the vegetables in water. Peel and fillet the remaining half of the orange. Cut all of these ingredients into cubes.
Season the salsa with olive oil, vinegar, grind with chopped herbs. Place on a serving plate.
Add marinated seafood to your plate.
Garnish to taste and serve the shrimp ceviche to the table.
Important additions to the recipe
If you have fresh frozen shrimp, marinate them in lime juice. If the shrimp are boiled-frozen, then you can marinate them in lemon or orange juice.
