Shrimp Ceviche - BELIZEAN STYLE RECIPE FOR TODAY

Shrimp Ceviche - BELIZEAN STYLE
Ingredients:
1lb. of raw (uncooked) cleaned shrimp
2 cups diced ripe tomatoes
1 large onion diced
1 bunch cilantro chopped
1 habanero pepper minced
5 lemon ( lime) squeezed/ juiced
1 tsp salt (or to taste)
Instructions:
Rinse your shrimp under cool water. .
In Belize we rarely eat raw meats of any kind. Ceviche is an exception.
You may cook your shrimp, if you do we recommend a flash boiling technique. Boil some water, and dump in the shrimp for 3-5 minutes, the second they turn pink pour out the water in strainer.
After the shrimp is cooked chop it up into small pieces.
Once the shrimp is prepared you will essentially make a salsa with the other ingredients. Chop the tomatoes and onions into nice quarter inch chunks. Add pepper, lime juice and salt to taste. Chop up cilantro very fine.
Add the shrimp!
If you opted for raw shrimp let it soak in the lime juice for 20-30 minutes so that is can “cook” in the acidity of the lime juice.
Serve with fried corn tortilla chips
