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. :)
