    Kimke's Note:

    This shrimp ceviche "cocktail" was orginated by Rick Bayless. I was a bit nervous about it at first but it is GREAT. I definately recommend using the jicama rather than the cucumber but both are good. This is best made the day it is served.

      I can't believe I haven't reviewed this; I've made it many times! Easy to prepare, and nice and light for hot days. I use the jicama and the cucumber, and usually double the hot sauce. I don't leave the shrimp in the 1/2 c. lime juice for an hour, either; I just throw it all together and then let it refrigerate for at least an hour before serving.
