Refreshing, delicious & authentic shrimp ceviche with avocado. Perfect side dish or appetizer for your next Mexican meal. I picked up this recipe from my late MIL and tweaked it a tad to please my boys. Very easy to make it as mild or spicy as you like. You may also add some fish or just use faux crab meat if you are a vegetarian. *Great for Cinco de Mayo with a Mexican fruit salad, fish tacos and some Coronas!

Really enjoyed this easy, classic ceviche! I ALMOST followed verbatim but made the following adjustments - used cooked shrimp (that's what I had on hand) and had to cook my scallops (poached in ff milk til done-5-6' max on medium then cooled with water rinse). Avocadoes were not added but served as a side so as to allow for better keeping. The taste was so clean and fresh! Thanks for sharing!
