What is shrimp ceviche?
Shrimp ceviche can have varying elements. One thing is always the same; it is flavored with citrus and the dish is always served chilled (sorry that was two things). I added orange juice along with the lemon and the lime, I think the sweetness works well with the bite from the red onion. Cucumbers and jalapenos can be added; I chose to keep my ceviche simple by tossing my shrimp with fresh tomatoes and creamy avocadoes.
