Ceviche is a seafood dish of raw fish marinated in citrus juice, which “cooks” the fish without heat. This version starts with cooked shrimp and adds tomatoes, cucumbers and serrano peppers. —Adan Franco, Milwaukee, Wisconsin

"Ceviche is using raw fish. Not sure I understand why this shrimp is cooked before marinating. I'd think that might result in a rubbery, tough shrimp. I like that it's a salad but I think I'd let the lime juice "cook" the shrimp- not cook beforehand. The ingredients look yummy. Think I'll try using raw shrimp and not process it. Maybe less Serrano peppers but add a lot of yummy chopped avocado chunks! Thx for sharing this recipe. I may change my three star rating higher... Just need to convince me ceviche is also with cooked shrimp. :)"
