Makes a great appetizer, party snack, side dish or main course! Also try using assorted seafood such a tilapia, crab, scallops, etc. I included the ketchup, but you can use sweet Ecuadorian tomato sauce as traditional or skip it altogether as I prefer! Some also like it on the side and let the guests choose. You can also place a dollop on the side of the martini glass as some restaurants do. You can flash cook the shrimp if preferred by placing in boiling water for 2 minutes before peeling and deveining them. You can make this with only an hour or so of "cooking" in the citrus juices, as you prefer. Also...I use 2-3 jalapenos and occasionally habenero for extra pep! Serve with a crisp but fruity sauvignon blanc (rochioli or girard)
