  • 2 pounds shrimp frozen or raw, peeled with tail off
  • 1 red onion diced
  • 5 Persian cucumbers diced
  • 2 avocados diced (firm is better than soft so that they don't get mashed in the dish)
  • 1 pound cherry or plum tomatoes cut in half
  • 1 cup frozen corn (if you can find fire-roasted frozen corn, that's really great in this recipe too)
  • 1 bunch cilantro chopped
  • 1 cup fresh squeezed lime juice
  • 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 teaspoons sea salt
  • 1/4 cup ketchup (I prefer the taste of Kensington's organic ketchup)
  • few dashes favorite hot sauce (I prefer Tapatio). Add as much as you prefer.


  • Boil a pot of water. Add 2 teaspoons sea salt to the boiling water.
  • Add the shrimp for a few minutes or until just cooked. Look for the tails to curl up, which indicates they are cooked. Remove cooked shrimp to a clean plate.
  • When cool enough to handle, dice shrimp into chunks and add to the largest glass bowl you own. Add half of the lime juice and toss together. 
  • Add in onion, cucumbers, avocados, tomatoes, frozen corn, and cilantro.
  • Add the rest of the lime juice to a small mixing bowl and mix in olive oil, 2 teaspoons of sea salt, ketchup, and as much or as little hot sauce as you like.
  • Add this mixture to the bowl of shrimp and veggies and give it a good toss.
  • Serve shrimp ceviche with tortilla chips or tostadas.
