Fresh, fresh, fresh!! Feel free to make this dish hotter by adding a seeded and finely chopped jalapeno chile pepper or a generous pinch of cayenne to the marinade in step 2. Enjoy!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Fill a large pot halfway with water and bring to a boil. Add the shrimp and cook until just opaque in the center, about 2 minutes; drain in a colander. Rinse the shrimp under cold running water; drain. Do not let the shrimp fully cook as the lime juice in the marinade will continue to "cook" it.
  2. Peel and devein the shrimp; transfer to a large bowl. Stir in the tomatoes, onion, lime juice, cilantro or parsley, oil, cumin, salt and pepper. Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours or up to 6 hours.
  3. Place a romaine leaf on each of 4 plates. Top with onr-fourth of the shrimp mixture and the radishes. Serve with lime slices.

This is like a Mexican seviche or ceviche except the shrimps are pre-cooked. It was very easy to do according to the directions, but my husband and I both thought it lacked a little in flavor for our tastes. So I doubled the seasonings and amount of cilantro while keeping everything else the same. I also added one small green chili, one small red chili, and one jalapeno pepper very finely chopped. Thanks for posting, now I don't have to go to the local Bodega when I want this. Made for ZWT5.
